The Give Back 365 (GB365) program was founded by COLA Inc. COLA Inc. is a physician-directed organization whose purpose is to promote excellence in laboratory medicine and patient care through a program of voluntary education, consultation and accreditation. COLA Inc.’s services are designed to improve clinical laboratory as a whole, giving laboratories confidence that their facility provides the best patient care. By weaving education throughout all of its services, COLA Inc. works with clinical laboratories to meet and exceed regulatory requirements.
GB365 was conceived and built around the idea of creating a unique, community-reinforcing program that not only serves as a component to COLA Inc.’s mission, but also brings awareness to the clinical laboratory profession and the importance of laboratory science. Through GB365, students ranging from elementary to undergraduate school, learn about the variety of laboratory careers available and their contribution towards everyday medical diagnosis.
In addition to introducing students to the field of laboratory science, GB365 proudly support those who have already committed to the field by offering scholarships to students enrolled in an accredited laboratory science program.
The ultimate goal of GB365 is to give back to the Clinical Laboratory Science field 365 days a year.
