ASCP Celebrates Your Contributions and Dedication to Patient Care
Dear Medical Laboratory Professional:
ASCP celebrates Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 19 to 25,
2015, throughout the United States and honors those who work in laboratory
medicine not only this week but all year long. The theme for Medical Laboratory
Professionals Week, Laboratory Professionals Get Results, demonstrates the
close ties between accurate laboratory diagnoses and best patient outcomes.
Every day, your work makes a definite difference to your patients’ well-being
and quality of life. Approximately 300,000 medical laboratory professionals
perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests annually. We
commend medical laboratory professionals and pathologists’ assistants for:
Being essential members of the patients’ healthcare team
Performing and evaluating medical laboratory tests to correctly
detect, diagnose, and help prevent diseases
Adhering to the highest quality standards of patient care and saving
countless lives each day
Thank you for your continued dedication and service to the profession.
Warm regards,
William G. Finn, MD, FASCP
