On March 3rd, One World DMG, a company that specializes in the design of patient education products, played host to New Providence High School’s Biomedical Engineering class. Jon Keaney, STEM Department Head, along with Superintendent of Schools, Dr. David Miceli accompanied the students on a tour of the company. Students met with One World’s mechanical engineers, medical illustrators, animators, industrial designers, and graphic artists who walked the graduating seniors through the engineering, medical, and creative processes involved in creating products for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.

Highlights of the day included viewing 3D printing in the R&D lab, discussing patented designs, and the development of injection training devices, as well as, the importance of project management and process validation. Students also learned about One World’s MedQuarters™  Medication Management System, which allows hospitals to monitor high-risk discharged patients by sending a series of alerts to patients, caregivers and hospital caseworkers when medication is not taken properly. Dr. Miceli expressed, "On behalf of the New Providence Board of Education,  "I would like to thank Matthew Coe, Chief Operating Officer, and One World's staff for providing our Biomedical Engineering students with the opportunity for a "real world"  hands-on experience.  Their generosity was greatly appreciated, and we anticipate this partnership will continue for many years to come."

Each of the presentations was followed by a quick Q&A and group discussion. “We’ve been in business designing and manufacturing educational products for patients and HCPs for 33 years,” said One World DMG COO Matt Coe. “We always enjoy sharing our experience and knowledge with smart young minds. The students from New Providence High School were enthusiastic and surprised by the diverse skill sets of our employees. It was great having them here and hope that we were able to inspire them in some way.”

I can enjoy the same movies over and over like it were the first time to see them.  My kids roll their eyes at this.  Well, many unimaginable things happen as you become a certain age, and you tend to learn to accept those things graciously as gift.   But I remember the movie “The Blind Side.”  Until I saw that movie, I didn’t know homeless children ...

What's Hot and What's Not

Summer is a great time to take a step back, sip a cool beverage, and take a look at what’s going on in the world of college admissions.  Departments use the summer to evaluate how their year went and plan on any changes they want to make for the fall.  Did they over-enroll? Under-enroll?  What application materials were useful to them?  Which were redundant or time ...
