Medical Laboratory Science News

Date: May 24, 2017

In celebration of National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 24-28, thousands of Medical Laboratory Professionals across the United States put on their running shoes and participated in a virtual 5K!  The Lab Week Run, sponsored by the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science, raises awareness of the importance of laboratory professionals as vital members of the healthcare team and provides scholarships and funding for their Student and New Professionals Member Forums. 

Participants from Lifebridge Health Laboratories had a wonderful evening completing their 5K at Meadowood Regional Park in Lutherville, Maryland.  Lifebridge Health is a valued partner to Stevenson University’s Medical Laboratory Science Program, providing dedicated lecture and laboratory space for senior students in the program at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore.  Several laboratory professionals from Lifebridge facilities are generous and enthusiastic faculty members and clinical instructors in the MLS program at SU.  Click here to learn more about being a medical laboratory professional.   Click here to learn more about the Medical Laboratory Science Program at Stevenson University.

In honor of National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 24 - 28, the Medical Laboratory Student Association (MLSA) held a Hematology Talk with Stevenson’s own Betty Ciesla.  Mrs. Ciesla has been an educator, author and medical laboratory professional specializing in Hematology for nearly 40 years, diagnosing countless blood disorders.  For the benefit of those in the audience who are not medical laboratory professionals, Mrs. Ciesla discussed the laboratory profession as a whole and presented a case study on Iron Deficiency Anemia.    

The mission of the MLSA is to educate, inform and raise awareness of the importance of medical laboratory professionals in the role of healthcare.  Throughout the academic year, the club hosts events that are meant to engage the university community.  Please “like” our Facebook page in order to stay informed when engaging speakers, such Mrs. Ciesla, or other events take place that showcase the Medical Laboratory Science Program, its students and activities.
