Medical Laboratory Technicians Week – Congratulations to our lab techs!


Did you know that over 1.2 million lab tests are performed in Canada every day?

Our health system depends on the professional work of thousands of medical laboratory technicians throughout the province. Blood samples, urine tests, tissue biopsies – all these technical exams underpin an accurate doctor's diagnosis, and light the way for a path to health.

"We wouldn't have the outstanding health system we do today if it weren't for the terrific work done by our medical laboratory technicians every day, around the clock," said Sherry Ogasawara, vice president of the health services component of the BCGEU. "We need to take the time to say thank you to our members for the great work they do. We are proud to represent them!"

Medical Laboratory Technicians Week runs from April 24 to 30, 2016. Click here for additional downloadable materials from the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science.
