Next week is National Medical Laboratory Week!

During the week of April 22 – April 25, LMP will be taking part in National Medical Laboratory Week – the annual celebration of our medical laboratory professionals who play a critical role in every aspect of health care.

 

DSCF7233Poster Contest!

As a laboratory professional, how do you help patients every day?

Create a short phrase that describes what you do in the lab – and it could be turned into a poster!

Submissions may be sent to LMP.Communications@uhn.ca and staff are encouraged to submit as many phrases as possible. The top three that best describe “life in the Lab” will be turned into posters – and you’ll win a prize.
