"Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science"
~ ~ Opening and Celebration extended from June 8, 2020 to August 31, 2020 ~ ~
Celebrating 45 years as ASCP-certified Medical Technologist and
Opening of Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center in Kitely
The “Virtual Laboratory Training, Career Recruitment and Retention (VLTC) Project” also known as the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) is a virtual world-based integration of STI laboratory training; information sharing; clinical laboratory guidelines; and laboratory career awareness. The Virtual Laboratory Training Center and Laboratory Career Center were birthed out of the vision of the project's creator and builder, Sally S. Cherry, BS, MT(ASCP) who is represented in-world by the 3D avatar, Sally Cherry.
The vision, "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real" or R2V2R is reflected in the project's tagline "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science". The overall mission of the VLTC Project is to integrate clinical laboratory training; showcase medical laboratory resources; share lab and public health information and promote medical laboratory careers within 3D immersive virtual worlds. Upon completion, the Virtual Lab Training & Career Center (VLTCC), the nine (9) region complex will include...
The Kitely-based avatar, Sally Cherry aka Sally S. Cherry, BS, MT(ASCP) , creator of the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) was interviewed by Selby Evans aka Thinkerer of Virtual Outworlding. She shared information about the BioLibrary, a gathering space for laboratory professionals; public health colleagues; training participants; and visitors to network, and discuss topics of interest. The BioLibrary is located on the second floor of the Biohazard Unit within Ms. BugLady's BioChamber.
The interview also included a discussion about the Virtual Health Coalition (VHC), a virtual-based group to help foster networking and community building. In observance of the VLTCC Opening celebration, the virtual-based Virtual Health Coalition (VHC) group created a real life Facebook Group Page, "Virtual Health Coalition (VHC)". The group page reflects the bi-directional integration of the creator's vision... "Real To Virtual; Virtual To Real". The "Real To Virtual" is virtual-based information-sharing; training, and marketing of real life content, programs, and events. The "Virtual To Real" is networking to foster real life collaborative partnerships and community building initiated in a 3D immersive virtual world. Thus, the tagline, "Real To Virtual; Virtual To Real in Laboratory Science"... Medical laboratory professionals, public health colleagues, and educators networking, collaborating, and sharing information between real life and 3D immersive virtual worlds.
