From April 21 to April 27, celebrations were taking place across the country to acknowledge the significant role medical laboratory professionals have in our health care system.
LMP was proud to partake by hosting a number of events throughout the week. Here’s a recap by numbers:
Four Wet Lab Grossing Sessions
A new addition to NMLW this year, the Surgical Pathology Team took attendees through the presentation of actual tissues specimens and discussed anatomy, clinical history, specimen preparation, gross technique and specimen sampling. A number of staff from the Joint Department of Medical Imaging also joined in celebration of NMLW to better understand the relationship between imaging and surgical pathology.
Three Continuing Education Sessions
Our classic lecture-style continuing education sessions didn’t fail to deliver this year, as we heard expert voices from across LMP share knowledge from their practice areas. Watch them again here.
Two Big ShoutOuts in Celebration
The first, a tweet from UHN:
The second, a physical display in Toronto General Hospital …
One Celebration of UHN’s Laboratory Professionals
This year’s final celebration was filled with great food (no cake left behind!), coffee/tea, snacks and of course the dedicated people that make LMP what it is.
At the celebration, final raffle tickets were handed out, and the winners have been pulled! Congratulations to Bonnie Giffen and Melissa Komadina.Pick up your $50 Amazon Gift Cards next week at Katie Sullivan’s Desk (11E across from Room 230).
