LIVING THE LAB LIFE
A BLOG FOR ASCLS REGION V
Attention all laboratorians, please share this message with all your friends who work/live in North Dakota:
It has been brought to my attention that there is an URGENT matter (or in lab language...STAT!) related to laboratory testing in our state. Right now, there is a bill being debated in the ND Legislature, related to who can perform laboratory testing. The wording proposed would allow anyone to perform waived testing anywhere, without supervision.
Please read the attached letter ("Bill 2202") prepared by ASCLS-ND Past-President Alice Hawley, which describes the situation AND provides you an opportunity to become involved in making sure this dangerous legislation is not passed. Please read it immediately, as action is needed as soon as tomorrow. This is a great opportunity to have a Voice in shaping our profession - thank you in advance for any and all attention to this matter!
