National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week
April 22-28, 2018
National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (NMLPW) is an annual celebration of the medical laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care. NSH and other medical organizations wanted to show our support and gratitude for the hard work laboratory professionals do. Lab Professionals Week is held annually during the last full week of April.
NMLPW is a time for medical laboratory personnel to celebrate their professionalism and be recognized for their efforts. Another goal is to inform and educate medical colleagues and the public about the medical laboratory and the impact of having these dedicated skilled professionals has on the overall patient care. Since lab techs often work behind the scenes, few people know much about the critical testing they perform every day.
