Not your momma's needle and thread!


When Physician Assistant, Navjot Kaur, came to Sandi Uribe's medical assisting class at E. Roosevelt High, she wasn't planning to show kids how to do buttonholes and back stitching. Her expertise is in medical suturing and she works at the Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance as a surgical PA. Ms. Kaur is passionate about sharing her knowledge with budding young medical professionals and came armed with enough suturing supplies for everyone to participate in holding the curved surgical needles and using surgical thread to practice on artificial "skin" pads. The students were so excited to practice, they didn't want to break for lunch! On behalf of Sandi Uribe's class, thank you Ms. Kaur!
