League of Laboratory Superheroes
We all know real life heroes in our families, in our schools, and in the workplace. Clinical and public health laboratories may seem hidden from sight but their contributions to our health and safety do not go unnoticed. We celebrate the unique contributions laboratory professionals make in clinical settings and beyond. Meet the League of Laboratory Superheroes who exemplify all the ways heroes in lab coats protect us every day. There’s more to come on the League, so be on the lookout for news of their exploits.
