Lab Week superheros

March 15, 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, laboratory professionals have undertaken a heroic effort, leaving the safety of their homes daily to wield pipettes in defense of our communities. They have worked night and day, navigated unprecedented challenges, searched out the virus in every specimen, found answers, and developed solutions.

They have become superheroes in the fight against COVID-19.

In honor of the upcoming American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Laboratory Professionals Week theme, “Avengers of the Laboratory,” and in recognition of the contributions all laboratory professionals have made over the past year, ARUP is hosting a Lab Week Superhero Stories Contest.

Winners of the contest will be featured guests on our LabMind podcast with Brian Jackson, MD, medical director of Business Development, IT, and Support Services.
