Alicia Anglin
Class of 2010

At Neumann we learned different tests that I still do in the hospital. I do them here at HUP, so it was great to learn the manual process while I was at Neumann and to really understand the background.

Alicia Anglin ’10 is a graduate of the clinical laboratory science program
She is now the Medical Coordinator for Martin Law LLC

Neumann has prepared me for medical school because the courses are so challenging.
