An Interview With Lab Superheroes: Stories of Ingenuity, Creativity, and Grit (Part I)


When most people think of laboratorians, they picture introverts following rigid processes to perform technical tasks. These stereotypes sell laboratory professionals short. True, laboratory testing does involve technical chemistry and biology tasks, and some scientists might be introverts, but our field is far broader than this picture suggests. In this two-part episode, Stephanie Whitehead from the University Health System San Antonio and Kathy Sakas from NW Laboratory (Part I), and Chris Bradley from Wisconsin Diagnostic Laboratories, along with Charles Daniels and Karen Corson from Adventist Health (Part II), shatter these stereotypes with their stories of ingenuity, creativity, and sheer grit.
