Grade 12 took a trip to the Chronic Care Center in Hazmieh, where they visited the genetic lab and learned more about gel electrophoresis and DNA analysis. They listened to lectures about Thalassemia and Type 1 Diabetes, which are two prevailing diseases in Lebanon and are also covered in their curriculum. They also passed by the blood bank to learn more about the process of handling, preserving and testing blood samples before blood transfusions are given to patients.
