SPRINGFIELD, Missouri – Evangel University’s Natural and Applied Sciences Department was recently awarded a grant from the Ferrell-Duncan Clinic Foundation (FDCF) to purchase much-needed binocular microscopes for its anatomy and physiology teaching laboratories.
The grant allows for the upgrading of well-used monocular microscopes to binocular microscopes that provide greater depth perception and resolution of images. These premium microscopes are in line with those used in professional healthcare settings.
FDCF provides educational support for the community and for the employees and physicians of Ferrell-Duncan Clinic.
“We are grateful to the Ferrell-Duncan Clinic Foundation for their support,” said Dr. Michael Tenneson, chair of EU’s Natural and Applied Sciences Department. “This grant allows us to continue training students with top of the line equipment as they pursue advanced education in highly-ranked nursing, medical, physical assistant, and physical therapy professional schools.”
