Wendy Bateman Loly and Michal Munro Patterson were Medical Technology laboratory partners in 1964. 1964 was the year that the Medical Technology Program was moved from Vancouver General Hospital to BCIT. This School of Medical Technology sign was saved from the bin by these friends who have traded it back and forth for 55 years. Due to downsizing the friends and former lab partners donated it to the BCIT Archives.
