Syracuse City School Students Visit the Operations Center
On July 23, Laboratory Alliance welcomed the incoming freshman class of P-TECH students to the Operations Center. This is the fourth year that Laboratory Alliance has hosted Henninger High School students participating in the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program. Ten new 9th graders enrolled in the clinical lab technology programs attended.
Upon the students’ arrival, we provided them with an introduction to the clinical laboratory science profession as well as a discussion of the career outlook for licensed clinical laboratory professionals. Immediately following our introduction, students toured the lab—escorted by volunteer employees—as they rotated between five different stations representing some of the clinical laboratory disciplines (microbiology, chemistry, hematology, urinalysis/body fluids and cytology).
Laboratory Alliance is part of a collaborative partnership between the Syracuse City School District and Onondaga and SUNY Broome community colleges to train high school students for careers in the health care industry.
