RE: Histotechs vs Med techs in the good ol'USA

Thank you Tim for your excellent report on the difference between med tech
and histotechs.   I agree with everything you said, especially the fact
that high schools and colleges do not even know what the field is about and
the message needs desperately to get out that histology is a class of its
own, and jobs are out there for you  when you get through with training.

I wonder if the National Society could help by making a set of slides and
an official statement about the field of histology that we in each state
could have access to and take it to the schools on their career days  and
perhaps recruit interested people  and show them the things we do to make
students aware of a much needed but understaffed profession.
