Greetings.....we are just a month away from the National Meeting in Chicago and I would like to take this opportunity to invite all ASCLS members interested in Point of Care to attend the Point of Care Scientific Assembly on Monday, July 30th 10:00 to 11:15 am. I am the current Chair, serving my second year, we are looking for a 2018-19 Chair and VIce -Chair. We would really like to get this SA more active this year and we need your help. We will be discussing potential program topics and speakers for the 2019 National Meeting in Charlotte, NC. With your involvement we can make this a dynamic SA as we will not have access to the fine programs provided by AACC next year it is our goal to provide a POC track in Charlotte next year. Please participate and make your voice heard...help shape the future of the Point of Care Scientific Assembly. If Point of Care is your calling and you possess the passion to share your laboratory expertise with other health care professionals, please join me.....the future is ours to make!
