Hockessin, DE, resident Allie Renai has received a Crozer-Keystone Health System Hospital Laboratories Medical Technology Scholarship. Renai, a senior clinical laboratory science (CLS) major at Neumann University, received money toward her tuition at Neumann and will also work for Crozer-Keystone after graduation as part of the scholarship.
“I was really excited when I found out I won, this is going to be a great opportunity for me,” said Renai. “I will be doing something different each day and working in many different labs.”
The CLS program prepares students for work in medical center clinical laboratories, blood banks, and research and industry laboratories. Students perform a range of laboratory procedures, not limited to DNA electrophoresis, chromatography, and microscopic examinations. Student also utilize research and analytical skills that will enable them to play critical roles in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease through clinical study.
“I met Allie during her first year at Neumann. At that time, I met an enthusiastic, viable young woman who knew exactly what her educational goals were. During physiology, the first course I taught her, I was so impressed by her energy and ability to communicate,” said Sandra Weiss, professor and program director of Clinical Laboratory Science at Neumann. “She would arrive early and help not only in the mechanics or skill or the laboratory set up; but, also in mentoring and explaining to other students the necessary steps to take to complete the work accurately and precisely.”
“We are pleased to award the Crozer-Keystone Health System Hospital Laboratories Medical Technology Scholarship to Allie Renai. This scholarship is competitive and awarded based not only on her academic achievement, but her commitment in pursuing a career in medical laboratory science,” said Maria Batter, education coordinator at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.
The health system comprises five hospitals, several outpatient facilities, a comprehensive physician network of primary-care and specialty practices, and the Healthplex® Sports Club. For more information, visit www.crozerkeystone.orgor call 1-800-CK-HEALTH (1-800-254-3258).
