National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week

April 21-27, 2019

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.

Listen to NSH's Laboratory Podcast Series

To celebrate Lab Week, NSH is launching a new podcast series, Histology Careers: Job Seeking in the Lab. The series features interviews with lab managers from labs of different sizes and specialties from across the country. A new episode will be released every day this week so be sure to subscribe to NSH's podcast channel, HistoTalks to catch each one.
