The laboratorians are judged based on leadership, commitment, passion and excellence in the work place; while the laboratories are judged based on how they have demonstrated innovation, a drive to improve, teamwork and support for their employees. ADVANCE continues to highlight these individuals and facilities in celebration ofMedical Laboratory Professionals Week.

Instead, he referred to the dedication to improvement each member of the laboratory tem displays on a daily basis, regardless of any singular area of performance - especially when it comes to putting the patients first.
