"During March 2-5, 2020, students from the Chemistry Department's CH101 (Survey of Inorganic & Organic Chemistry) laboratories had the opportunity to interact with the personnel from the USA Simulation Program relating to Experiment #4 in their spring semester laboratory experiments. Approximately 215 students listened to Dr. Mike Jacobs, who is the Director of the program, for a 60-minute lecture on solutions, concentration gradients, and IV bags. Students were then able to setup IV bags on simulation patients while working with medical personnel from the USA Simulation Program. " - Richard O'Brien
