Heart of Lab booth at Barbecue with Brey

Marketing Director (Danny Nussbaum), Marketing Manager (Mary Swift) and Pathologists (Drs. Shadia Alam, Erica Martin and Joyce Simpson) manned the booth at Barbecue with Brey.  The American Heart Association fundraiser which raised awareness for heart health is the 5th annual event hosted by Coach Mike Brey's Men of Heart.  Coach Brey and former Mayor Joe Kernan played the interactive game which challenged participants to match the name with the picture of six human organs and their pathology slides.  


A microscope allowed guests to view a slide of the heart after a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and Pathologists pointed out areas of scarring, fat, occlusion and normal tissue.
