Dental School Donates Old Scopes

With new technologies in Skourtes Tower advancing the histology, pathology, and microbiology curriculum, OHSU School of Dentistry recently donated about 40 microscopes to middle and high schools in Oregon. 

“This was such a great opportunity to share with schools in low-income communities, many of whom are our partners in the On Track OHSU! Program,” said Susan Shugerman, M.F.A., Ed.D., assistant vice provost for education outreach and collaboration. “These gifts will enable Oregon schools, many of whom are on tight budgets, even more focus on science and engineering.” 

Gifted were Nikon and Olympus compound microscopes, and Nikon, Olympus, and Wolfe compound binocular microscopes.
