Susan J. Leclair, Ph.D., CLS(NCA)
"A favorite quote is from Eric Hoffer who said, ‘In times of change, learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.’ In medical laboratory science every day brings new learning and new things to try. The only thing that equals the rate of professional growth is your own personal enrichment."
