An evening educational event for all health care providers (particularly those providing primary care) designed to bridge the information gap between laboratory medicine and clinical practice.
Often seen as a “black box,” we aim to demystify the laboratory and to establish better access to laboratory medicine expertise. We will use case studies to provide practical clinical pearls for health care providers (particularly those providing primary care, such as GPs and NPs) and we will also explore how evolving laboratory medicine practice will improve the quality of clinical care for all our patients
Why should you attend?
Lifelabs is committed to our patients and their health care providers. We have organized this continuing medical education event as one of the ways we endeavor to better serve our local community.
Enjoy an evening of good food and drink with your fellow colleagues while learning more about laboratory medicine clinical pearls that will directly apply to your daily clinical practices.
