    April 14-20, 2024 is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (#MLPW).

    This week provides the profession with a unique opportunity to increase public understanding of and appreciation for #MedicalLaboratory personnel.

    MLPW, which takes place the last full week in April each year, is coordinated by a collaborative committee with representatives from 17 national clinical laboratory organizations, including American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science ASCLS, APHL - Association of Public Health Laboratories and American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).

    Now in it's 49th year, it is important to reflect on the important history of MLPW. Medical Laboratory Professionals Week originated in 1975 as National Medical Laboratory Week, or NMLW, under the auspices of the American Society for Medical Technology, now called the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS). In subsequent years, other organizations have served as cosponsors and campaign supporters.

    I am excited to share this wonderful and important MLPW Proclamation from the Great State of Texas! Our thanks to Greg Abbott Office of the Governor of Texas! Join us during this upcoming week of recognition! #Lab4Life
