Valerie’s Answer

I choose healthcare because I loved science, chemistry, biology in highschool. I found that medical laboratory technology was the field that would allow me to learn more about those sciences, process and analyze blood. I enjoy providing diagnosis that aid physicians in making a detailed decision about how to treat patients. I have had the opportunity to learn so much about the human body. Sometimes with all the knowledge that I've learned I wish I had pursued being a physician. But I do however, love working with blood specimens. They can tell a lot about the health of a patient, so much more than just looking at someone.

Yolanda’s Answer

I became a pharmacist because I wanted to help people. My dad is a doctor but I saw how it took so much of his time. I wanted to have more of a work-life balance but still be in the healthcare field. In addition, the profession of pharmacy has so many options. You could go into clinical, academia, research, industry, retail, hospital, home infusion, nuclear and that is just to name a few. So for me personally pharmacy was the right fit best I am able to help people and make a difference and still have a home life.
