ASM Celebrates National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week

Dear Colleague:

ASM is a supporter of Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW) April 19-25, 2015 and salutes the more than 300,000 medical laboratory professionals around the country who perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States each year.  The theme for Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, “Get Results” demonstrates the close ties between prompt and accurate results in the laboratory and the best outcomes for patients. 

This year, ASM will celebrate MLPW by making the Clinical Microbiology Portal’s Q & A and Hot Topics available to all.   Q&A allows you to submit microbiology questions for a response from an expert and Hot Topics allows you to view an expert’s presentation on a current or controversial topic and includes feedback to questions.   Please feel free to share the website with your colleagues this week (   

Thank you for your support.
