Students’ glimpse at transplant difference

13 August 2019

Year 12 students from Marsden State High School have visited patients in Logan Hospital’s Renal Dialysis Unit, organised by DonateLife Queensland.

Clinical Facilitator Brendan Zornig said the excursion was part of the students’ health studies which included learnings about organ transplants.

“In addition to raising awareness about the transplantation process this visit provided the students a glimpse into the world of healthcare, a career many of the group are considering.”
