Every year, the American Society for Clinical Pathology celebrates Medical Laboratory Professionals Week in April. Lab Week is an annual celebration of medical laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in health care and patient advocacy. 

LSTC staff went all out planning a week full of fun events, including lab Jeopardy, a staff art gallery, a variety of lab-themed guessing games and quizzes, and of course, great food. Take a look at how we celebrated lab professionals and our own staff this week!

Troy Ganz, Jeff Long, Stacy Mitchell, and Mike Stanger performed as “Covid Cafe” during the LSTC talent show.

Staff earned raffle tickets by participating in various lab week events, which they could then enter into the raffle for a variety of exciting (and lab-themed!) prizes.
