What We’re Reading: Lab Week Edition

What We're Reading: Lab Week Edition |


Although we like to think every week is a time to show our appreciation for laboratorians everywhere, this week has been deemed Medical Laboratory Professionals Week — or Lab Week, as it’s come to be known.  While laboratories have taken the week to celebrate their staff in a variety of ways, APHL has celebrated their work on our blog and social networks.  This year we chose to focus on the work of environmental laboratorians.  Who are they?  What exactly do they do?  And what’s APHL’s next big move in environmental health?

These laboratorians shared their journeys into environmental laboratory science:
