Below is an example of the many community and recruitment events that the CLS faculty and students engage in.

This year, CLS Faculty Members Jeannie Guglielmo, and Kathleen Finnegan participated in the CommUniversity Day event at the Academic Mall; sharing their fasicnating, innovative, and entertaining world with the larger campus community! Through interactive activities, participants were privileged to a hands on experience that was relevant to the Clinical Laboratory Sciences ethos in a fun and exciting way! Below are a few photos from the day:




NEXTPO-2017Here is the event explained by Jeannie Guglielmo:
NEXTPO is a program sponsored by the ASCP (American Society for Clinical Pathology) to help address the workforce shortage of Clinical Laboratory Scientists. This program aims to expose pre-college students to careers in the laboratory. For the past several years, Jeannie Guglielmo along with 3 other ASCP Career Ambassadors (depicted above) have provided hands-on workshops to hundreds of students at the Annual ASCP Meetings in Tampa, FL, Long Beach, CA, Las Vegas, NV and Chicago, IL. Students are rotated through stations in Microbiology, Blood Bank, Forensic Science and Pathology Assisting, completing hands-on activities along with other fun activities such as a PPE race and a Diagnosis Challenge.

Jakub Micko is a participant in the University Scholars Program who will graduate in May 2017 with a double major in Biology and Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and a minor in Writing & Rhetoric. Jakub has been doing research under the supervision of Dr. Joshua Rest for nearly two years. In the Rest laboratory, Jakub is working to build a cDNA library of S. cerevisiae (yeast) in various growth environments to explore its transcriptome as well as analyze gene content variation and copy number variance. Jakub is also currently working on a Clinical Laboratory Sciences group research project under the direction of Dr. Gloria Viboud. In addition, Jakub has also been engaged in an independent research project under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Kaplan (Program in Writing & Rhetoric), involving the comparison of writing programs at AAU universities. 

At SB, Jakub has served as a Teaching Assistant for Organic Chemistry, and as an Orientation Leader and Residential Assistant; and has been an active member of the Pre-Med Society.
