Author Biography

Bruce Colbert is Director of the Allied Health Department at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. He holds a master’s degree in health education and administration, and has authored eight books, written several articles, and given more than 250 invited lectures and workshops at both the regional and national levels. Many of his workshops provide teacher training involving techniques to make the health sciences engaging and relevant to today’s students. In addition, he does workshops on developing effective skills in critical and creative thinking, stress and time management, and studying. He is an avid basketball player, even after three knee surgeries.

Jeff Ankney
is Director of Clinical Education for the respiratory care program at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. In this role, he is responsible for the development and evaluation of hospital clinical sites. Jeff has previously served as a public school teacher, Assistant Director of Cardiopulmonary Services, Program Coordinator of Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and a member of hospital utilization review, patient safety, and hospital policy committees. He is a consultant on hospital management and pulmonary rehabilitation concerns. Jeff was also the recipient of the American Cancer Society Public Education Award. He is a pretty fair fly fisherman and wing shot, although his springer spaniel, Rusty, would probably disagree.

Karen Lee
is an associate professor in the biology department at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, where she teaches all of the anatomy courses, including Anatomy & Physiology for Nursing and Allied Health students. She presents regularly at scientific conferences and has published several articles on crustacean physiology and behavior. Serving as the coordinator of undergraduate research on campus, she is also the chair of the annual undergraduate symposium at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. For the last twenty years she has sung bass in women’s barbershop choruses and quartets and more recently has been harmonizing with any singer or guitar player who will let her near the microphone.
