“Life as a Rural Med Tech” at Antijenic Drift

I’ve been slammed with the last minute preparation for Beer 1Up, as well as, honestly, just processing the loss of a dear friend. Ergo, my writing has slipped and I don’t have a long post for you guys today.

That said, I’ve been reading a few things, in particular over at my friend Jen’s blog. It’s the week of the year when she particularly highlights her job and the work of others who hold similar jobs. And, frankly, it’s fascinating. I’ll have something up based on an interview she gave me about her job next week, but I don’t want you guys to miss out. Here’s all the entries she’s ever done for “Lab Week”, and I encourage you to check them out.

However, if you just want to read one, in particular, I suggest Life as a Rural Med Tech. It’s an interview she did with a friend who moved from a big hospital lab to a little one, and it’s a neat look into the differences. I found it particularly interesting to consider why, aside from expense, a rural hospital may choose not to invest in the newest, biggest instruments for their lab.

Please, go check it out. And if you like it, let Jen know.
