Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 25 – 30, is a unique opportunity to increase public understanding of and appreciation for clinical laboratory personnel. There are more than 300,000 practitioners of clinical laboratory science in the United States.
Our Lab staff are an integral part of the healthcare team, yet the dedicated efforts of laboratory professionals often go unnoticed by the general public. Lab Week is a fun opportunity for the department to celebrate and be recognized for the contribution they make to the healthcare process. For the occasion, Lab staff participated in some fun and games, including a “Pin the Flagella on the Trichomonas” contest, as well as “Superhero Day,” where they were able to dress as their favorite hero. Please make sure to thank a lab employee for their dedication, even if you have to hunt them down in the basement to do so. They are truly an irreplaceable part of the PVMC family.
