Celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals Week at Michigan Medicine
Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW) originated in 1975 in an effort to raise public understanding and appreciation of the impact of the laboratory as it relates to a patient’s diagnosis and care.
It is also critical for the public to understand the quality and professional accountability the lab has as it relates to the patient. Laboratorians play a vital role as a member of the health care team.
MLPW will be held from April 21-27 and in celebration, the Department of Pathology has planned a week of engaging activities to recognize and educate everyone on the excellent patient care the laboratories provide.
