Outreach opportunity strikes for Colonio
Leticia Colonio (Letty), an HPS’er from the New York City area, says she’s always ready for an outreach opportunity to help spread the word about Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome. While visiting her son and his girlfriend in upstate New York, she was asked to come to a nursing class at the University of Buffalo North Campus. Luckily, Letty was prepared for anything! She had HPS brochures in her purse in both English and Spanish. She gladly met with a summer session nursing class of 13 and their instructor. You never know when those outreach moments will present themselves.
