Chall Serves as Guest Lecturer in Sweden
Through the grant, Linnaeus University Strategic Grant for Teacher Mobility, awarded to Maria Mattson, senior lecturer of the Department of Chemistry and Biomedical Sciences at Linnaeus University, Amy Chall, MLS(ASCP), lecturer in the Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences, had the opportunity to visit Kalmar, Sweden, to serve as guest lecturer.
“I provided a three-hour lecture on blood diseases to second year students as part of their pathophysiology course in their Biomedical Scientist program which is analogous to our Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) program,” stated Chall. “I also had the opportunity to discuss research I am conducting regarding antibody-conjugated carbon nanotubes and microwaves as a form of targeted anti-cancer ablative therapy.”
In addition to discussing blood diseases and her current research, Chall gave a presentation on Georgia Southern University and the Medical Laboratory Science program that is currently offered on Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus.
“During my visit, I was able to collaborate with other faculty members to develop a joint, web-based assignment that both University students could participate in to learn more about each other’s healthcare systems. During the last week in March, junior level students in the MLS program will present to the first-year Linnaeus students on how the blood supply is managed in the United States and in turn the Linnaeus students will give a presentation on the healthcare system in Sweden.”
While in Sweden, Chall toured clinical sites at the local hospital in Kalmar to learn more about the similarities and differences in the way hospital laboratories are organized.
