News Release, College of Southern Maryland

The Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) Program at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) joined the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science by participating in the National Virtual 5K race to highlight and celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals week, April 19-25.

While the nation’s Medical Laboratory Technician healthcare heroes are on the front lines every day, their work has never been more important as they help the world identify and cope with the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The CSM MLT Program students and faculty had originally planned to lead the first lap of the race around the La Plata Campus, but after the state’s “stay-at-home” orders were issued, the MLT team opted to compile a video of their individual efforts (see video below). MLT students, alum, faculty, clinical affiliates and other CSM faculty want to show their support for each other’s commitment to learning, and to making a difference in patients’ health and welfare.
