Medical laboratory technologists across Canada will be celebrating the National Medical Laboratory Week (NMLW) from April 12­17, 1999. The theme this year is "We're Here ... When You're There." To encourage and support you in increasing public awareness of the important contribution that you make to health care in Canada, the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Sciences (CSMLS) has prepared the 1999 NMLW Planning Guide and other resource materials. Start planning your 1999 NMLW events today. CSMLS will be pleased to provide you with the 1999 NMLW Planning Guide and other promotional materials -- colourful posters, general information brochures, fact sheets, a media kit and the video "Reaching Beyond Technology."

IAMLT Declares April 15 World Medical Laboratory Science Day

The International Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (IAMLT) has endorsed medical laboratory technologists becoming more involved in promoting the image of the profession, and has declared April 15, 1999 as World Medical Laboratory Science Day. The theme for the 1999 day is Biomedical Laboratory Science -- the Key to the Control of Diabetes. IAMLT encourages its member associations and their members to take advantage of this special day to promote the profession. If you can't manage a full week of NMLW activities, or perhaps your local needs relate to the IAMLT theme, then join in on this day with your colleagues worldwide in the promotion of the profession. For additional information visit the IAMLT Internet site at
