April 23-29 is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week!
I currently work at a major hospital in the pathology department, and Lab Week is our annual “party week.” We have raffles, bake-offs, picnics, happy hours, etc. We raise money for charity, stuff ourselves full of good food, and have indulge in more silly antics than usual. At today’s annual “State of the Union” someone proposed a new slogan for next year: “The Lab – You never see us, but without us you’d probably be dead.” True story.
