The logo represents a quilt that has a “patch” of each organization’s logo. This conference offers educational programs in all areas of medical laboratory science, opportunities to socialize with fellow laboratory professionals, and exhibits of the latest laboratory instrumentation and products.
Get ready to add new “patches” to your individual quilt of knowledge! Not only will you learn new things, you will have opportunities to network with colleagues, make new contacts, and have a good time.
