National Laboratory Professionals WeekIn honor of Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (April 19—25), COLA wants to personally thank medical laboratories and their hard-working, dedicated staff who make a measurable impact on patient care and the diagnosis and prevention of disease.

The extraordinary efforts of laboratory professionals often go unnoticed by the general public but we know how much you mean in the ever-changing world of healthcare and that quality laboratory results lead to healthier lives.

So laboratorians take a bow. You deserve to be honored not only during Medical Laboratory Professionals Week but all year long.
