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.
