The study of kidneys brought a doctor of nephrology and a kidney transplant recipient to Elaine Asmusâ€™ science class at Snake River High School last Wednesday.
To bring the study of the kidney into real life, SRHS junior Taylor Crumley, a student in the class, arranged the visit of nephrologist Dr. Michael Haderlie, M.D., and kidney recipient Peggy Hansen.
In a question and answer session with the students, Dr. Haderlie spoke about his educationâ€”13 years after high schoolâ€”and his school debt--$300,000.
