Seven students from College of the Canyon’s medical lab technician program will take part in a pinning ceremony tonight.

Inspired by the traditional pinning ceremonies that honor the college’s graduating class of registered nurses each semester, the event marks the completion of the students’ training and their advancement into the medical health care industry.

Students graduating from the program will receive an associate in science degree in MLT and be eligible to sit for the national certification exam needed to receive licensing from the California Department of Health Services Laboratory Field Services Branch.

“Our program model is ‘saving lives behind the scenes,’ and that’s exactly what these graduating students will now be able to go out and do,” said Cynthia Dorroh, dean of Allied Health and Public Safety at the college.

The event will take place tonight at the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center at 5:30 p.m.
