My name is Maria Roussakis and I am a recent graduate of the Medical Laboratory Science program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. I currently work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) in the Biochemistry, Hematology and Transfusion Medicine labs. I enjoy teaching and helping others and have previously worked as a tutor for undergraduate students in several science courses such as Chemistry, Biology, Statistics, etc. I am also currently pursuing a Master of Science in Health Science Education at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON to teach Medical Laboratory Sciences at a post-secondary level. I am very interested in different branches of science, especially Health and Biological Science. Additionally, I am passionate about social issues, such as women’s rights, LGBTQ issues and race issues, and explore some of these issues in my blogs.
