LECOM, Bradenton presents the Colby Cassani Endowed Lectureship Series...

The Colby Foundation's Trustees are participating at the third of six medical schools scheduled to present the Colby Cassani Endowed Lectureship Series (CCELS) in 2013.

The Colby Foundation first awarded the CCELS to Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine's (LECOM) Bradenton campus in 2009 ensuring that its students, faculty, and staff would be among the thousands the foundation works to educate about organ, eye, and tissue donation.  Funds granted by the Colby Foundation via the Lectureship Series ensure that the clinical, logistical, and personal aspects of donation and transplantation have a permanent place in the school's curriculum.  

Colby Foundation Trustee, Starla Cassani, will share her family's journey through grief at the loss of their infant son Colby and the hope and healing they experienced in the lives saved through donating his organs.  The patient perspective will be presented by Christoper R., a kidney transplant recipient.  In addition, Brian Kimbrell, MD, FACS; Trauma/Surgical Critical Care Medical Director at Blake Medical Center in Bradenton, FL; and Melissa Kelley, Recovery Services Specialist, LifeLink of Florida will speak.

The Colby Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose work is made possible through the generous support of its contributors.
