The Mission of ASCLS is to make a positive impact in healthcare through leadership that will assure excellence in the practice of laboratory medicine.
The ASCLS Student Forum is using Jamberry as their Spring fundraiser, and the ten regions of ASCLS are competing to see who will raise the most funds. Let’s order some of these products, and boost Region VIII into the lead! A poster that explains Jamberry with the details for ordering can be downloaded here. If you have questions, contact Maria Rodriguez, the Student Forum Secretary, and current Montana State University student.
