New histology school opening in Tucson

From:Ethel Macrea

Hello Histonetters.  I am thrilled to announce that the Pima Community College of Tucson AZ has just begun their 2 year degree histology program.  Believe it or not, we have 28 student enrolled.  Terrific! 
What the school is in dire need of is some usable histology equipment and stained slides for the tissue/histology portion of the program.  If anyone out there has old microtomes etc that they can donate to a non-profit school/program (and the lab can write it off as a donation), please let me know.  Also, if anyone has old dyes and stains that are expired etc, the school can use those.  And finally, we are trying to create lab sets of stained slides depicting different tissue structures and there is a large list of these. 
If anyone can help out with these, please let me know.  I can then forward the "wish list" to you and you can do whatever is suitable for you.  On behalf of Pima Community College's Histology Program, I would like to offer their thanks in advance to anyone who can help the school get off the ground this semester.  Letters for tax purposes can be provided for any contributions.
