Doctorate in Health Sciences. Masters in Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Associates in Biology. Can tutor in Microbiology, Cell Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, General Biology; Clinical immunology, Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics; Virology. Ethics and Corporate responsibility for health and its global implication is a special interest of mine. I can also assist college alumni in choosing prospects and subject matters for Literature Review and for Clinical Research. Let me help you succeeed!!!
I've worked as a medical laboratory scientist (MLS) for 10 years. My specialties were Microbiology and Molecular Diagnostics. I taught general biology and microbiology to students at San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico for 4 years before making my move to Hilo, HI to be close to family. I also taught clinical immunology, chemistry, hematology and blood banking to those in the clinical laboratory science program. This applied the testing necessary for proper diagnosis and disease progression as well as treatment monitoring.
I was employed as a generalist in the medical laboratory in Hilo Medical Center, but it lacked human contact, and my love of teaching instigated my efforts to seek other types of employment.
