Chem Lab Getting a Spectrophotometer


Our UVM Mobile Chem Lab is thrilled with this donation from Barry and Carmen Libman, a new Spectrophotometer, donated to the Tia Foundation!  The couple accompanied us on our last brigade to Atengo, Jalisco and were moved by the dedication of the Quemi-pollos (our Chem Lab students) who stayed up until as late as 3:00 a.m., making sure all the water, blood and urine samples from the day were complete.  They asked what could be done to help and the result was this life-saving donation that we will be using in June in Poncitlan, Jalisco during our project with Brophy College Preparatory volunteers.  Thank you Barry and Carmen for your donation to the Tia Brigade!
