Five Colby Cassani Endowed Lectureship Series Events, Winter 2013

Thursday, March 28, 2013




Since January, the Colby Foundation has spoken to medical students, faculty, and staff at five medical schools in four states as part of the Colby Cassani Endowed Lectureship Series (CCELS). 





These five schools are among seven that have been awarded the Colby Cassani Endowed Lectureship Series (CCELS), a full-spectrum learning experience, by the Colby Foundation.  The CCELS not only includes speakers addressing donation and transplantation's clinical challenges, scientific developments, ethical issues, and regional logistics; but, it also features individuals sharing their personal journey as an organ donor, donor family, or transplant recipient.

A cornerstone of the Lectureship Series is Colby Foundation  Trustee, Starla Cassani's, presentation telling Colby's story.  The Cassani's tragic loss of Colby and the hope and healing they found through donating his organs inspired them to establish the foundation to educate others  in his honor.  Through the CCELS the Colby Foundation is funding a permanent place for education about organ, eye, and tissue donation in the curriculum of qualifying medical schools.
