She tests the tests
Before doctors can use a test to detect a disease, it has to be thoroughly vetted for safety and effectiveness. Sara Hallowell makes sure medical tests do their job. As a Clinical Affairs Specialist for Inverness Medical in Maine, she evaluates new diagnostic tests that can help save lives.

Sara has always been interested in science. And thanks to her mom, a science teacher, she began reading articles and dissecting specimens at an early age. The support of her family, excellent guidance in college and graduate school, and lots of hands-on experience combined to shape her career path. She is completely satisfied with where it has led her!
