A new website and community initiative sponsored by COLA encourages industry partners to support the lives of current and future laboratory professionals.
The program offers resources for professionals as well as asks laboratories, educational institutions, regulatory agencies, membership organizations and manufacturers to get involved in promoting the value of laboratory medicine.
The GiveBack265 program is based on four components:
- Student Enrichment
- Student Mentoring
- Disaster Relief Resources
“GB365 was built around the idea of creating a unique, community-reinforcing program that brings awareness to the clinical laboratory profession,” said Douglas Beigel, CEO of COLA. “With so many Medical Laboratory Technology and Science programs closing their doors, there is a greater need than ever before to spread knowledge and interest in the profession among students of all ages, to ensure the future of quality laboratory medicine.”
