Georgia Southern faculty member serves as guest lecturer in Sweden

Amy Chall, MLS (ASCP), a lecturer in the Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences, recently visited Kalmar, Sweden, to serve as a guest lecturer at Linnaeus University. Chall provided a lecture on blood diseases and her current research on targeted anti-cancer ablation therapy to second-year students at Linnaeus University. Chall also gave a presentation on Georgia Southern and the Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) program that is currently offered on the Armstrong Campus.

“During my visit, I was able to collaborate with other faculty members to develop a joint, web-based assignment that University students on both campuses could participate in to learn more about each other’s healthcare systems,” Chall said. “During the last week in March, junior level students in the MLS program will present to the first-year Linnaeus students on how the blood supply is managed in the United States. In turn, the Linnaeus students will give a presentation on the healthcare system in Sweden.”

Chall’s trip was sponsored by the Linnaeus University Strategic Grant for Teacher Mobility, awarded to Maria Mattson, senior lecturer of the Department of Chemistry and Biomedical Sciences at Linnaeus University.
