Job Shadowing

Do you know a high school student who is interested in science and technology?

We're partnering with the Bassett Healthcare Network to connect students to the exciting world of clinical laboratory science. Students will have the unique opportunity to spend a total of 15 hours shadowing clinical laboratory technologists in Cobleskill, Cooperstown, Delhi, Herkimer, Little Falls, Oneonta, or Sidney.
