Capstone 2010

Capstone 2010 is the largest ever interprofessional training event for health sciences students. Here is an article from UWeek reporting the success of this event.


Many positive feedback and lessons learned from the participating students:
"It provides a real life situation to apply skills learned."
"It helps to find my professional role on the team."
"Next time, don't kick the family member out!"
"I will make sure to tell others that I am in need of help."

Thanks to all the people who made this happen!

A fish is any aquatic vertebrate animal that is covered with scales, and equipped with two sets of paired fins and several unpaired fins. Most fish are ectothermic (or cold-blooded). Fish are abundant in most bodies of water. Fish can be found in high mountain streams (e.g., char and gudgeon) and in the deepest ocean depths (e.g., gulpers and anglerfish). According to FishBase, 31,500 species of fishes had been described by January 2010.[1]
Food prepared from fish is also called fish, and is an important human food source. Commercial and subsistence fishers "hunt" them in wild fisheries (see fishing) or "farm" them in ponds or in cages in the ocean (see aquaculture). They are also caught by recreational fishers and raised by fishkeepers, and are exhibited in public aquaria. Fish have had a role in culture through the ages, serving as deities, religious symbols, and as the subjects of art, books and movies.
