KS Phlebotomy School is one of Houston’s LEADING schools for Phlebotomy. They recently announced that it has created a scholarship named after one of their first employees whose death was as a result of Lupus.
“Nakia Hector was an amazing and very dedicated woman. She started with our school in the planning phase and put everything she had into KS Phlebotomy School”, says Karen Steele, Founder of KS Phlebotomy School.
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
Karen adds, “Nakia was VERY special to me. It was important that we do something to keep her presence in KS Phlebotomy School. A scholarship to KS Phlebotomy School was the perfect way to do it. People suffer from lupus year round…we didn’t want to wait until Lupus Awareness Month in May of 2020 to roll this out.
”The Nakia Hector Phlebotomy Scholarship will roll out during Health Literacy Month in October. The scholarship will fully fund a students tuition to KS Phlebotomy School.
KS Phlebotomy School is created on a platform of helping its student’s Seeing a BETTER Way. It’s also is the schools tagline and is illustrated in its logo. The Official logo of KS Phlebotomy School consists of a drop of blood and a person with their arms open, welcoming the sunlight. As a result, Seeing a BETTER Way of life.
“People can See a BETTER Way of life thru a career in Phlebotomy. Some people rely on public assistance their entire lives and it becomes tough for them to ‘See A Way Out’. KS Phlebotomy School is the light/path to “Seeing a BETTER Way”, Karen comments.
