1.  BioRad award and a new book

Posted 10 days ago
Fellow members,

I am very grateful to ASCLS and BioRad for awarding me the Professional Achievement Award in phlebotomy. There's no honor greater than to be recognized by your peers. I gratefully appreciate all who were involved in this award.

As some of you know, I've answered thousands of questions on phlebotomy over the years. I just compiled them into my fifth book, The Lab Draw Answer Book. It's the second edition of my 2008 title, Blood Specimen Collection FAQs, renamed to appeal to nursing professionals as well. It answers over 400 commonly asked questions on drawing and processing blood samples, and managing those who perform blood collection procedures. It was just released and is available on our web site.

This book is my brain. They say the next best thing to knowing an answer is knowing where to find it. If you need a well-researched answer, you'll find it here.

It's an honor to be a resource to ASCLS and our family of members.
