Clinical Pathology News

Medical Laboratory Professionals Week is an annual celebration of medical laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in health care and patient advocacy. Each year, there are week-long events that consist of lectures, informational fairs, lab tours, luncheons and dinners.

This year, during the lab week from April 21 to 27, NYPH-CUIMC celebrated our clinical laboratory personnel, and we had the opportunity to increase the understanding of, and appreciation for, all clinical laboratory professionals by other members of the Hospital and the Medical Center. At the luncheon on April 24, 10 exemplary clinical laboratory professionals (see below) were recognized by being presented with the Nathan Lane Award. Each winner received a framed certificate and a gift card worth $100.
