LIVING THE LAB LIFE
A BLOG FOR ASCLS REGION V
For this year's #labweekrun I chose to do a walk/hike through Battle Creek Regional Park in St. Paul, MN. I brought along my boyfriend to enjoy the beautiful weather. A week before, this trail was covered in two feet of snow, compliments of a rare, springtime blizzard. We finished our ~5k in 78:14.... we would have been done sooner, but we kept getting into snowball fights. #minnesotaproblems #minnesnowta #labweek #clc2018 #ascls
At the opening keynote talk today, Dr. Lee Hilborne of ASCP discussed the topic of appropriate lab test utilization and the role of laboratory professionals in promoting value-based care. The "Choosing Wisely" campaign combines the efforts of many medical professional organizations to (among other things) find best practices for lab testing ordering and uses.
