Field Trip to Kaiser Laboratory

posted Apr 25, 2012, 11:18 AM by Microbiology Students Association   [ updated Apr 28, 2012, 5:42 PM ]

Hi MSAers, 

We are happy to inform you that KP Clinical Lab field trip has been scheduled! This trip would be great for those of you who are interested in becoming a CLS and for those who want to explore different career options before committing. Here are the details:

Where: Kaiser Permanente Clinical Lab
               11668 Sherman Way, 
               North Hollywood, CA
               (818) 503-6878
When: Thursday, May 3, 2012
What time: 12:45pm (it may last up to 2 hours, so please allow appropriate amount of time) 

There are a few rules that have to be followed. Attendees must do the following:
  • Read and fill out the attached disclaimer form. The form must be turned in to a MSA officer any time before the field trip (or you can just bring it with you to KP and turn it in before we go in)
  • E-mail csun.msa@gmail.com as soon as possible if you are planing to come and/or if you are planing to bring a guest (we need to know approximately how many people are attending) 
  • Arrive on time. Unfortunately, the lady (Mickey Amos, Assistant Director)  who'll be guiding the field trip has a tight schedule, so we have to start and finish on time
  • Wear close toed shoes and long pants
  • No eating or drinking while in the labs
  • No photography within the premises (outside is OK)

Hope to see everyone there!
