The Labs Committee works alongside Quest Diagnostics to provide patients with free laboratory testing. The responsibilities include working closely with the medical students and attending physicians to conduct and obtain lab screenings that are essential to the diagnostic and treatment processes for the patient. These tests include TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone test), Lipid Panel, CBC (Complete Blood Count), CMP (Complete Metabolic Panel), HbA1C (Hemoglobin A1c for blood sugar), pregnancy tests, urinalysis, and many more.
Additionally, the Labs Committee ensures that all lab procedures are done safely and successfully while prioritizing the comfortability of the patient. Outside of clinic hours, the Labs Committee works diligently on creating educational material to increase the patients’ understanding of the different types of lab testing that RFC offers. Overall, this committee strives to provide quality care services to all underserved patients.
