CAFE DESCRIPTION:

Have you or someone you know ever had blood tested? Had an infection and needed antibiotics? Or needed a blood transfusion? Behind the scenes, medical laboratory scientists are testing patient specimens to provide valuable results to their health care providers. The divisions of the laboratory where tests are performed include clinical chemistry, microbiology, hematology, the blood bank and more. The laboratory results are used to diagnose diseases, initiate or change treatment plans, monitor patients’ health, or let them know they are okay. Come to this café to learn more about the exciting field within biomedical science! Participate in fun, hands-on activities to explore the various tests medical laboratory scientists use to determine the diagnosis!

LEARN MORE! A follow-up tour of the medical laboratory at UVM Medical Center will take place on November 25 from 2-4 pm. Due to UVMMC policies the tour will only be available to youth in grades 10 –12 who attend this café. Registration will open after the café; limited to 10 participants.
