MOORHEAD - Mississippi Delta Community College held its Phlebotomy Pinning Ceremony Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. in the Greer-Stafford Allied Health Building on the Moorhead Campus. This was the second pinning for the one-semester program. Students participated in lectures and performed clinical rotations at Greenwood Leflore Hospital and Bolivar Medical Center.

Phlebotomy is the study or art of drawing blood for diagnosing and treating health problems or for blood donation. People who specialize in this study are called phlebotomy technicians. Phlebotomy technicians work in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centers. Phlebotomy technicians play an important role in health care. 

The primary job of a phlebotomy technician is to take blood samples from patients. The blood samples might be taken either for diagnosing illness or for blood donation. Blood analysis is one of the most important diagnostic tools available to medical clinicians, so it is vitally important that a blood sample is obtained in a way that does not compromise it in any way.

If more than one test has been ordered, blood collection tubes must be drawn in a very specific order, and the phlebotomist is responsible for knowing that order. Additionally, venipuncture is an invasive procedure that can be frightening or even painful to the patient if performed incorrectly.

MOORHEAD – Three MI-BEST students participated in Mississippi Delta Community College’s (MDCC) graduation ceremony on May 4 in the J.T. Hall Coliseum. Fatimah Sabir, of Greenville, Melrose Brewer, of Greenwood and Gloria Evans, of Ruleville, earned degrees in their respected career-technical fields of study.

The trio enrolled at MDCC through the Mississippi Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (MI-BEST) program. The MI-BEST program offers individuals the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, formerly known as GED, while taking college courses and earning stackable credentials. 

After hearing an advertisement on a local radio broadcast, Sabir inquired about the MI-BEST program during the summer of 2017. She enrolled in the welding program. During the interview process, Rosalind Shaw, project coordinator and student navigator for MDCC’s MI-BEST program, asked Sabir about her motivations to participate in the program. “I would like to participate because I have potential. I want a better life for my children,” said Sabir. She has three daughters, ages 4, 5 and 8. 

Sabir earned a One-Year Career Certificate in Welding. Welding instructor Roger Wright applauded her as one of the top welders in his class. Sabir recently competed in the state Skills USA competition held in Jackson on April 11. At MDCC’s Service and Leadership Luncheon, Wright presented Sabir with the Metal Arc Achievement Award. 

Brewer and Evans completed the 15 college credit hours as required by the MI-BEST program at the end of the fall 2017 school semester. They continued their education in the Business Office Technology program, earning a One-Year Career Certificate. Brewer was also an honoree at MDCC’s Service and Leadership Luncheon. She was presented the Certificate of Merit for Service as MDCC’s Phi Beta Lambda Treasurer by instructor, Amanda Hardin.

Medical Laboratory Technology graduates

  • Thursday, 03 May 2018 00:00

Mississippi Delta Community College (MDCC) held its Health Science Pinning and Graduation Ceremony Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in the J. T. Hall Coliseum on the Moorhead Campus. The ceremony included graduates from the Associate Degree Nursing Program, the Dental Hygiene Program, the Medical Laboratory Technology Program and the Radiologic Technology Program.

The processional was performed by Beverly Terrell and Dr. Edward Rice II provided the invocation with opening remarks by MDCC President Dr. Larry Nabors. 

In total, seventy-two students graduated in one of four health science programs. Each program, including Associate Degree Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Medical Laboratory Technology and Radiologic Technology, prepares students for an exciting healthcare career. Graduates of these programs are awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree from Mississippi Delta Community College.

Five individuals completed the Medical Laboratory Technology Program. In the laboratory, a highly skilled team of pathologists and medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians (MLT) and specialists work together to solve the mysteries, put the puzzles together, and answer the critical questions of medicine. Seventy to eighty percent of medical decisions made by physicians are based on laboratory findings. In fact, the practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the laboratory. Every day, new advances in genetic testing, biomarkers, and PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology are creating more challenges and job opportunities for clinical laboratory science professionals. It is a fast-growing field, and there will be great demand for clinical laboratory professionals in the future. Clinical laboratory professionals are the researchers, the investigators, and some say the real heroes of medicine.
