Gerald D. Redwine, Ph.D., M.ED., MT(ASCP) is an Associate professor at Texas State University Clinical Laboratory Science program. He has over twenty-five years of experience as a generalist in clinical laboratory sciences over a span of thirty-seven years. His first four years of experience were with the U.S. Air Force as a Medical Laboratory Technician beginning January 1980. He completed Texas State University (then Southwest Texas State) CLS program in 1995 and obtained his second bachelor’s degree.
After many years of training others, he pursued his desire to teach and completed a Master of Education in Instructional Technology from Texas Tech University in 2008. He accepted his current position in the same program from which he graduated and teaches Introduction to CLS, Clinical Microscopy, Clinical Chemistry, and Research Methods. While he incorporates into the classes he teaches, what he learned in his Master of Education from Texas Tech University in 2008, his research interests have shifted. In the process of completing his Ph.D. in Adult Professional and Community Education, his research interest shifted from Instructional Technology to educating and encouraging the reduction of diabetes. More specifically, his research interests are in the decrease of type 2 diabetes mellitus in the African-American community by utilizing his developed theory of learning as the focus for qualitative and quantitative research.
He has been an active participant in the Texas Association for Clinical Laboratory Science (TACLS) since 2009. Meaning, he has attended all but one meeting, due to the death of a family member, since that time. He has made himself available to assist in each of these meetings as either a student bowl judge, speaker, planning committee member, and in 2016 Chaired the Publicity Committee. He is currently assisting the Poster supervisor for the 2017 TACLS meeting. Nationally, he has presented at CLEC, and in 2016 at the ASCLS meeting in Philadelphia PA. He has attended each ASCLS meeting for at least since 2013. He is a two times recipient of the prestigious Distinguished Author Award for the ASCLS.
