National Medical Laboratory Week 2016

April 24 - 30

This is only the beginning.

The most interaction the average person in Canada has with the lab is when they provide a sample.

This years' National Medical Laboratory Week campaign is focused on educating the public about what happens behind the scenes and just how integral the lab is in their health care.


Do your part to help raise awareness by completing actions from the celebration toolkit below. Your actions, combined with the actions of lab professionals around the country, can make a large impact. It's as simple as sharing the Lab Week website, setting up a display or presentation or inviting VIP guests to your lab. Every action is one step closer to educating others about the important work done in the lab.


Part of the fun of Lab Week is celebrating the great work you do. Whether you celebrate with colleagues in your lab or outside of work hours…give yourself a pat on the back. Don't forget to include us in your celebrations. Share your photos with us through social media (@csmls, Facebook, #LabWeek).
