Medical Laboratory Science News

Date: Jul 2017

2017 Medical Laboratory Science Graduate Megan Mioduszewski suffered debilitating, near constant migraines. In fact, she was often hospitalized due to the pain. Her headaches did not respond to normal migraine treatments.

During the summer prior to her senior year at Stevenson University, Megan visited the Migraine Clinic at Med Star Good Samaritan Hospital and began receiving Botox® injections around her head and neck. Every three months Megan returned for more injections to relieve future headache symptoms. The treatment worked and now she is headache free. Read the full story here.  Megan's story can be found on page 11.  To read about Botox® and the many diseases it treats, click here.

Megan chose to become a medical laboratory scientist partly because of her experience. Medical Laboratory Scientists are an integral part of the healthcare team, helping to diagnose and treat disease.  There is a demand for more laboratory testing as our population grows older and medical knowledge expands into biogenetics, DNA and cell marker technologies and personal­ized medicine. There is a critical shortage of medical laboratory scientists that is growing by 10,000 practitioners per year. Our graduates enjoy 100% employment at graduation and salaries are increasing. Learn more about this amazing profession and how you can be a part of it at Stevenson University.
