Histotechnology Professionals Day

March 10

On March 10th of 2010, the National Society of Histotechnology (NSH) announced the inaugural celebration of Histotechnology Professionals Day (HPD)—a day dedicated to raising awareness about the field of Histotechnology. Although much has changed in the last decade, the dedication of the scientists in the profession has remained the same, and each year, NSH create a variety of ways you can promote and participate in HPD.


Art of the Stain Contest

Every year, NSH holds the “Art of the Stain” contest that celebrates the marriage of art and science in histotechnology.
