Petal High School seniors enrolled in Allied Health II visited the Pearl River Community College medical laboratory technology program Monday, Feb. 7.The students toured the lab and got their blood typed.Im thinking about this field, so it interesting to see what it would be like, said Channon Kitchens.The Petal course includes a medical lab unit, said teacher Karla Hogan.I dont have all the equipment PRCC has so the visit helps our curriculum, she said.In addition to drawing and typing blood, the PRCC students showed the visitors slides of diseases they learned to identify and other procedures they will use as professional lab technicians.To learn more about the PRCC medical laboratory technology program, contact director Evelyn Wallace at 601 554-5523 or <a href="mailto:ewallace@prcc.edu.">ewallace@prcc.edu.</a>
