Medical Laboratory Professionals Week



What is Lab Week?

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 healthcare team. This is also a moment for lab staff to recognize their contributions to patient care while having fun with their coworkers.
