This week is National Medical Laboratory Week!
Since 1985, the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) has sponsored a special week in April to promote awareness and understanding of the role of medical laboratory professionals in the health care system. This year's national awareness campaign focuses on educating the public about the important work done by medical laboratory professionals.
