Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW) – April 24-30, 2016
MLPW provides the profession with a unique opportunity to increase public understanding of and appreciation for clinical laboratory personnel.
The celebration of MLPW will help increase recognition for the profession as it improves the individual practitioner’s sense of self-worth. Further, as the various professional groups within laboratory practice work together on this project, the sense of unity and purpose necessary to further the goals of all laboratorians are reinforced.
Many laboratorians plan displays, open houses and various other activities in their institutions or local areas. Some have obtained proclamations by mayors or governors while others have been featured on local TV and radio stations. National MLPW has been successful in increasing the recognition of clinical laboratory science among the healthcare community and general public.
Join us as we celebrate MLPW with ASCLS and the rest of the laboratory community using the hashtag #Lab4Life to show others how you are celebrating MLPW and follow what others are doing for their festivities!
