Included in the recent mailing of your membership dues was an announcement to mark Monday, April 14, 2014 on your calendars as Pathologists’ Assistant Day. This special day that places a spotlight on our profession is fast approaching. To commemorate the inaugural kick-off of this annual event a special PA-specific banner was created to announce the day!
We hope you will take an active role in using this banner as a means to educate others at your institution about the Pathologists’ Assistant profession. Please contact the marketing department of your institution to inquire about the possibility of placing an advertisement on your Intranet/web page, message boards, and screensavers, or in one of the hospital publications. This is a great opportunity to empower and celebrate our profession in the week leading up to and through Medical Laboratory Professionals Week 2014, which is scheduled for April 20-26.
Because after all…Each day you make a difference by providing quality patient care. We think you deserve to be recognized.
