College of Health Sciences students continue to rake in awards, another testament to the college's academically rigorous programs. Students from both the Clinical Laboratory Science and Physician Assistant Studies departments recently took top honors at statewide competitions.
Clinical Laboratory Science seniors did Marquette proud at the 2012 Wisconsin Annual Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science in April. More than 80 CLS students from Wisconsin universities presented 65 scientific posters at this meeting, and Marquette seniors won seven of the 10 awards.
