Goodwin Hosts Connecticut Histology Meeting

3On Saturday, November 8, Goodwin College hosted a meeting of the Connecticut Society of Histotechnology. Speakers included Richard Catrun of Hartford Pathology Associates, discussing case studies in diagnostic immunohistochemistry; Paulette Stelmach of Dako, an Agilent Technologies company, offering “Let’s Be an Artist with Special Stains”; and Dr. James Gill, Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Connecticut, speaking on Forensic Histopathology.

Kelli Goodkowsky, Histology Program Director, was proud that Goodwin was able to host this event. “It was an opportunity for students and those working in the field to network and connect. Being able to offer this type of meeting to students and graduates of the program was phenomenal. It shows that students have an interest in learning and that graduates are moving forward in their careers.”
