2022 Convention Workshop Ambassadors

Are you looking for a fun way to spend your Monday of the Convention? Well how about educating high school students on what exactly you do each day?

On Monday, October 17th, NSH will be hosting its 2022 Career Day from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.  We need volunteers for the AM session (8:30 AM to 11:30 AM) and the PM session (12:00 PM to 3:00 PM).  Participants can volunteer for one session or both sessions. Volunteers will work at lab stations to demonstrate grossing, embedding, cutting, staining, and cover slipping. In addition, volunteers will work with kids at a microscope to look at their completed slides. The event also includes an "expert" panel for a Q& A session detailing the different areas of histology. Volunteers are asked to attend a brief training session on Sunday, October 17.
