Lab Week Resources
The Division of Laboratory Systems (DLS) in the CDC’s Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS) celebrates Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (Lab Week) with you April 19–25. Consider sharing these messages to increase public awareness on the importance of laboratory professionals and their role in every aspect of health care. The exceptional efforts and behind-the-scenes work of laboratories is essential to protecting public health.
This Lab Week, and every day, we acknowledge the risks that laboratory professionals are taking to serve patients during the pandemic and appreciate the measures they take to mitigate risks to their colleagues and the communities in which they live and work.
