RE: [Histonet] Histotechnology Registry Study Group New Orleans, LA

From:"Flores, Teresa"

Atoska, this morning we covered fixation and getting ready to go into embedding; 7 students showed up and two are from Lafayette, LA; they have had a test on fixation; visited my EM Lab and plan I plan on having a future EM workshop hands on; also planned is a cytology lecturer (as one of the techs that took the HT Registry ASCP said that there were a lot of cytology questions). So I am comfortable in saying its for both HT and HTL.

The first study group was done by Rosemary Velasquez and they would meet at her house. And I was wrong about the first study group. Of 15 that would meet weekly,  6 took the HT registry and 1 took the HTL and all 7 passed!

This is the first study group at LSUHSC in New Orleans, LA

Hi Teresa, is this only for the HT or the HTL as well? Sounds like a great plan. I don't recall hearing or reading about the first session. Thanks, Atoska
