The goal of the UIS Clinical Laboratory Science Club is to broaden the experiences of students interested in CLS, increasing the scientific understanding and development of each student.
The CLS Club is an active, on-campus organization. We regularly have two major activities throughout the year: one or more Blood Drives for the Central Illinois Community Blood Center and a Poinsettia/Christmas Cactus Sale.
Proceeds from the Poinsettia Sale go toward a club trip to the Annual State Professional Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science-Illinois. This spring it was in Naperville. The meeting includes the Student Bowl competition. We took second place in 2018 and first place in 2017!
This fall and spring we also had very successful bake sales. Laboratorians are good cooks!
The CLS Club is open to all UIS students, both CLS and non-CLS majors. Students interested in joining CLS Club may do so by attending any of the meetings or contacting us for more information:
