National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week


National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (NMLPW) is an annual celebration of the medical laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care.  VCU Health CMH wanted to show our support and gratitude for the hard work our laboratory professionals do.

NMLPW is a time for medical laboratory personnel to celebrate their professionalism and be recognized for their efforts. Another goal is to inform and educate medical colleagues and the public about the medical laboratory and the impact these dedicated skilled professionals have on overall patient care. Since lab techs often work behind the scenes, few people know much about the critical testing they perform every day.

Lab Professionals Week is held annually during the last full week of April.
