1102 West 30th Lawrence, KS 66321 August 4, 19XX Dr. Maria Gomez-Salinas Director of the Diabetes Clinic St. David's Hospital 1000 Greenberg Lane Wichita, KS 66780 Dear Dr. Gomez-Salinas: I am writing you in hopes of finding out more about how the new Glucoscan II blood glucose monitoring system, which a representative at Lifescan informed me that your clinic is currently using. Originally, I saw Lifescan's advertisement of this new device in the January 19XX issue of Diabetes Forecast and became very interested in it. I wrote the company and got much useful information, but was recommended to write several current users of the system as well. For a technical report that I am writing for a technical writing class at Johnson County Junior College, I need some help with the following questions:
The Lifescan representative indicated that your clinic is one the leaders in implementing new technology for diabetics, and therefore I am eager to hear from you. In the report I will acknowledge your contributions, and I will send you a copy of the completed report if you wish. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Anita Teller Student, Medical Technology Johnson County Junior College
