Professor Carlo Ledesma: Lab Hero Published October 30, 2015

“I like that I get to use my analytical side every day. Essentially, I connect the dots, and steer the doctor or clinician down the right path.  It’s CSI kind of work.”

Professor Carlo Ledesma strives to give each patient the same level of care he would want for his own family.  In his Lab Hero story, featured on whatsmynext.org, Professor Ledesma says, “I like that I get to use my analytical side every day. Essentially, I connect the dots, and steer the doctor or clinician down the right path.  It’s CSI kind of work.”

Professor Ledesma began his career by earning a Medical Laboratory Technician certificate but continued his education to become a Hematology Specialist. Now, Rose State College is fortunate to have him as the Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Program Director.
