On Thursday, December 9, 2010, The Pittsburgh Chapter for the ARCS® Foundation toured WISER. The ARCS® Foundation, Inc. is a national organization dedicated to enhancing the United States' capacity for research and innovation in science and technology by providing financial support to the most outstanding American doctoral scholars in the sciences. The Pittsburgh Chapter, chartered in 2003, has the additional focus of increasing the number of outstanding American scholars pursuing advanced scientific study and research in the Western Pennsylvania region. The ARCS® Foundation provides a unique, cost-effective, and quality-assured mechanism through which corporate, civic and philanthropic organizations, as well as individuals, can impact American scientific and technological capacity, a primary engine of national economic growth and a cornerstone of our quality of life. During their time here at WISER, the ARCS delegation were given demonstrations on the introduction of a central line, how to use a fiberoptic bronchoscope, medical crisis in a patient room scenario, how anesthesia is used in simulation and a general tour of the facility.
