SPECT Fundraiser June 6 2015

"Special Delivery"
16" x 20" Oil on canvas

  Sterile Processing Education Charitable Trust is holding a fundraiser dinner and silent auction on June 6th, 2015 at Fort Calgary. I have donated this framed oil painting for their silent auction. A former co-worker of mine (Olive) is supporting her daughter's work (Christina Fast) through SPECT. Tickets for June 6 or information, contact:
 In collaboration with Mercy Ships Canada, SPECT supports the work of Christina Fast, a sterile processing instructor, to educate sterilization technicians in hospitals in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Congo and Madagascar. Following an invitation to Mercy Ships from a hospital, Christina begins an extensive evaluation process of not only sterilization procedures but also worksite arrangement and efficiency. She provides hands on mentoring as well as a classroom course to educate technicians on sterilization procedures that are sustainable within their current situation.  For more information about SPECT, please visit their website:
