Get Involved with NSH!

Volunteer Opportunities at NSH

The National Society for Histotechnology depends on a wonderful core of volunteers to serve as subject matter experts to help create member resources, histology education like webinars and training courses, promote the Society, and advocate for the profession. We are always searching for histotechs interested in getting involved! You can pick a micro-volunteering opportunity with a limited time frame, commit to joining a committee, or speak with us about other ways to engage with NSH. There are opportunities available to fit every level of availability and experience.

Micro-volunteering Opportunities

Write a Blog Post
NSH's blog, Fixation on Histology, is in need of authors! Share your advice, opinions, research, or entertaining lab tale with others in the histology field. If interested, email for more information.
