Betselot  Zelalem, BSHS ’20, chose to enroll in the Medical Laboratory Sciences Program at GW because it combined her interest in the molecular level of science and medicine.

“The faculty truly want the best for their students… their commitment and passion have molded me into the hardworking, diligent scientist I am today. I have gained leadership and critical skills that I will use not only in the workforce, but also in my personal life. I am incredibly grateful and will cherish all the memories I had at my time at GW.”
