The Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) is also known as the “Virtual Laboratory Training, Career Recruitment and Retention (VLTC) Project”. It is a 3D immersive virtual world-based integration of sexually transmitted disease (STI) laboratory training; clinical/medical laboratory updates; laboratory guidelines; and laboratory science career awareness. The VLTCC embodies the vision of the Project's creator and manager, Sally S. Cherry, BS, MT(ASCP) aka @SallyCherry. The overall vision, "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real" is reflected throughout the VLTCC... "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science". The mission of the VLTCC is to integrate clinical laboratory training; showcase medical laboratory resources; share laboratory and public health information; and promote medical laboratory careers within 3D immersive virtual worlds. @SallyCherry is assisted in-world by the Kitely-based avatar, Sally Cherry.

"It is my hope that the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) will serve as an introduction to some; and an inspiration to others while exploring its integration of 3D immersive virtual worlds and medical laboratory science. The opening of VLTCC was a celebration and major accomplishment of my real life 48th year in medical laboratory science. Looking forward to connecting, sharing information and networking with other medical laboratory professionals, infectious disease specialists, and educators as well as businesses and non-profits with VLTCC."

February brought snow to Real Life and exciting additions to VLTCC...
The first week of February was an exciting week at the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC)! The VLTCC Landing Plaza received a scheduled facelift with some scripting "pains". The new look was worth every "groan". A teleport VLTCC Destination Directory Board was added to the Landing Plaza to enhance the VLTCC experience of its visitors and training participants. Here, visitors and training participants can select the desired destination and teleport to it or any of the twenty (20) VLTCC destinations. Now, visitors have the option to use the VLTCC Destination Directory Board, or use the original networked teleport (telepads) system. The VLTCC Portal was added for any visitor who may land at the Opensim default 128, 128, x location. From the VLTCC Portal, visitors and training participants can teleport automatically to the VLTCC Landing Plaza, then teleport to any of the VLTCC destinations.

You are invited to teleport into Kitely, locate "Virtual Laboratory Training and " (Map), and teleport to a "VLTCC experience"...

I look forward to seeing you at the Virtual Health Coalition (VHC) Monthly Meet-Ups.
Announcing the VLTCC Opening of... "3D Virtual Reflections of a Digital COVID-19 Memorial".
You are invited to visit the latest Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real integration project within the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career center (VLTCC) in Kitely... "3D Virtual Reflections of a Digital COVID-19 Memorial”. The 3D immersive virtual world project was created to share information about real life United Memories, a digital COVID-19 memorial honoring Black lives lost to COVID-19 in the United States. The real life COVID-19 memorial was created by the Founder and CEO of Black Ladies in Public Health, Dr. Jasmine Ward with other dynamic Black women from across the country who also serve as leaders in public health. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, these women have been investing their time, talents and treasures to organize and mobilize the community in a collaborative effort to develop United Memories. The real life United Memories website was launched to bring the names, faces and stories of the diverse community of Black people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in the United States to the forefront. It gives family members, friends, coworkers and colleagues an opportunity to share photos and stories of those lost to COVID19. The submission of related visual art, music, and poetry is encouraged. I applaud the vision, work and commitment of Dr. Ward and everyone involved especially the “Truth-Tellers” for pouring this cultural libation into the world as a ritual of recognition, honor, and remembrance.

The overall purpose of the 3D immersive virtual world building project was to share information about this powerful digital memorial. Throughout the building process, I found myself reflecting on the profound loss within the African-American community in the United States. The 3D immersive virtual world project serves as another way to grieve, reflect, and remember. It was an honor to build the "3D Immersive Virtual Reflections of a digital COVID-19 Memorial... United Memories" in remembrance of Black lives lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You are invited to browse the photo album for the 3D immersive virtual world building project entitled, “3D Virtual Reflections of a digital COVID-19 Memorial… the “Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real” integration of United Memories into a 3D Immersive Virtual World". You encouraged to visit the 3D immersive virtual world project located within VLTCC @ Kitely. To learn more about the real life United Memories, or submit information about a honoree; share uplifting artwork (or poetry) and/or know of resources to assist in the grieving process, visit the website at http://www.unitedmemories.com.

"Laboratorian Takes Networking Into 3D Immersive Virtual World"
Still excited about the release of a fourth interview video by virtual-based colleague, Selby Evans aka Thinkerer of “Virtual Outworlding” during his visit to Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC). Was thrilled to share information the BioLibrary, a networking or meeting space located on the second floor of the Biohazard Unit within Ms. BugLady’s BioChamber. Here, VLTCC visitors are able to link to laboratory regulations and resources such as Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA); CDC Coronavirus site; World Health Organization (WHO) Coronavirus site; Ms. BugLady’s Lab Notes (lab blog); and related medical laboratory resources.

The interview “networking” video shared information about the Virtual Health Coalition (VHC), a virtual-based group created by yours truly, Sally S. Cherry, BS, MT(ASCP). In June 2020, the virtual-based Virtual Health Coalition (VHC) group was introduced into the real life as a Facebook group within the business page. Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center. Thus, the bi-directional integration of my vision… “Real To Virtual; Virtual To Real”. The “Real To Virtual” depicts real life information; programs; training, and promotions being shared within the virtual setting. While the “Virtual To Real” depicts the virtual-based networking and community-building being transferred into the real life setting. The Virtual Health Coalition is a perfect example with its launch in-world and its extension in real life. As someone who is passionate about networking, I am excited about looking forward to networking with other medical laboratory professionals, medical/healthcare providers, and virtual world citizens in real life and VLTCC. Indeed exciting!! You can watch the video at: https://youtu.be/2fji9-NIbOU

June 8, 2020 to August 31, 2020. You are invited to the official public Opening and Celebration of Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) ! Due to a brief medical delay, the virtual-based celebration of the creator's "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science" vision and 45 years as an ASCP-certified Medical Technologist has been extended until the end of August. Various features, amenities and activities will be added throughout the Celebration.
