Government Affairs

A key element of the ASCLS Mission and Vision is serving as the voice of all clinical laboratory professionals, including public policies that affect the profession and the public. The Government Affairs Committee and the annual Legislative Symposium are some of the ways that ASCLS members can stay informed about important health care issues being discussed in governmental and regulatory affairs.

The choice is up to you.
