Help wanted . . . and found
A lovely editorial in today's Boston Globe about use of the Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund, created by the Legislature in the economic stimulus bill of 2006. Thanks to this appropriation, BIDMC, Children's Hospital Boston, and the New England Baptist Hospital jointly created a two-year Medical Lab Technician program with Bunker Hill Community College. As noted in the editorial, "There's a high demand for these workers, whose responsibilities can include handling specimens and running blood tests. Classes are held at Beth Israel, after work. During the last six months, participants go to labs for hands-on training. And they still get their salaries, making the training affordable."
