The GiveBack 365 program was founded by COLA Inc. and was conceived and built around the idea of creating a unique, community-reinforcing program that not only serves as a component to COLA Inc.’s mission but also brings awareness to the clinical laboratory profession and the importance of laboratory science.
Through the GiveBack 365 program, students ranging from elementary to undergraduate school, learn about the variety of laboratory careers available and their contribution towards everyday medical diagnosis.
In addition to introducing students to the field of laboratory science, GiveBack 365 proudly supports those who have already committed to the field by offering scholarships to students enrolled in an accredited laboratory science program. The ultimate goal of GiveBack 365 is to give back to the Clinical Laboratory Science field 365 days a year.
GiveBack 365 is offering $500 scholarships to aid students currently pursuing a degree in the field of Medical Laboratory Science within an accredited program. This scholarship was formed in 2012, by COLA Inc., to foster awareness of careers in the medical laboratory and to support the individuals who will become the future of the industry.
While there is currently a need for 14,000 new lab professionals annually, lab science programs produce on average only 5,000 per year. GiveBack 365 wants to continue to be involved and contribute to increasing awareness about a profession in medical laboratory sciences through this Scholarship Program.
