    I think a histology program is its own recruitment plan. All you need is a
good program director to pitch the field to the biology majors. A histologist
with a 2 year degree will have less trouble finding a job than a biology major
with the same. And incidentally will probably make more money. This is how Anne
Marie Behling (for those of you who know her) suckered me into Histology. haha.
Now SHE was spirited if anything!
    The histology program in SUNY Cobleskill did seem to reduce the demand for
hostologists in the capital area of New York State, but when the students see
the opportunities that could await them if they are willing to leave the
immediate area, they will probably agree to spread out, giving the techs that
remain a little breathing room.
