Histotechnology Professionals Day

On March 10, 2010, The National Society for Histotechnology (NSH) announced the inaugural celebration of an annual Histotechnology Professionals Day; a day dedicated to raising awareness about the field of Histotechnology. Much has changed in the last decade, but one thing that has stayed the same, is the dedication of the individuals in the histology profession. 

Thank you to everyone who celebrated HPD 2020 with us!
