Congratulations to Greg Sutton, the
first person to make a donation through
the new automated Donor Kiosk in the
Main Mall at Royal University Hospital.
He made the donation while waiting
for his wife, who was at a medical
appointment. “It was an interesting
and convenient way to donate,” says
Sutton of TinyEYE Therapy Services (http://www.TinyEYE.com),
which offers Speech-Language Pathologists who work with schools online via telepractice. “We serve children
in remote communities so anytime
we can give back to the community,
we take that opportunity.” Everyone is
invited to check out the new multimedia
Donor Recognition Wall in the Main Mall
at RUH!
