Kidney transplant recipient Wayne Albanese has been a member of the Pearl Jam official fan club for so many years that he now gets first priority for front-row seats at the band’s concerts.
Fortunately for Mr. Albanese, a registered nurse at North Shore University hospital in Manhasset, far less time was spent on his part waiting for a much-needed kidney transplant than gaining his seniority in the Pearl Jam Fan Club. When Wayne found out he would need a new kidney, his older sister, Karen, immediately stepped up to become his donor, providing the lifesaving transplant he needed in December of 2007.

A great deal of professional development has also gone into training teachers in the new academic approach.
