The eighth grade class recently visited the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. The students observed a live kidney transplant surgery via distant learning technology from Saint Barnabas Medical Center. The students witnessed the entire procedure, including the removal of the kidney from the donor patient all the way to the recipient receiving a new kidney. The students were able to ask questions to the doctor performing the surgery and anesthesiologist. Later, the students were able to visit the exhibits.
