This special week was originated in 1975 and is coordinated by a collaborative committee with representatives from different national clinical laboratory organizations, including the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS), the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), and the College of American Pathologist (CAP) among other important stakeholders in Laboratory Medicine.</p> <p> According to the ASCLS, there are about 300,000 Medical Laboratory Science practitioners in the United States. Considering that approximately 70% of the medical decisions originate in clinical laboratory work, these professionals play an increasingly vital role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. Because laboratory medicine is behind the scenes, often their dedicated efforts go unnoticed by the general public and other health care professionals. In today's demands for the delivery of high-quality healthcare, medical laboratory professionals have the opportunity to ensure that the public is well informed about the high standards and professionalism that has always characterized their careers.</p> <p> The Andrews University accredited program for Medical Laboratory Science has contributed to the field of laboratory medicine by educating Medical Laboratory Scientists since 1989, although the Medical Technologist program began many decades before. The graduates of the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences minister to others by practicing and promoting standards of excellence. They are lifelong learners and professionals with exceptional skills, employed in different areas of health care like Generalist Medical Laboratory Scientists, Laboratory Medicine Specialists, Clinical Researchers, Missionaries, Educators, Physicians, Dentists, Presidents and CEOs of Health Care Organizations.</p> <p> You can join this national celebration by learning more about Medical Laboratory Professionals or by sending a message of gratitude to those laboratory medicine professionals you know.
