Our heritage in times of epidemic

  • 1.  Our heritage in times of epidemic

    Posted 14 days ago
    I had reason to pull out the 1936 volume of the ASCLS journal, the American Journal of Medical Technology, while working on my presentation for the JAM.  It was just by chance that I came across the attached editorial.  This is AJMT 1936, 2(3): 108.  The likely author is the then editor, possibly John Conlin, though he is not acknowledged.  I think we can identify with much of this editorial about the role of the laboratory in epidemics and come to the same conclusion.  (Remember, in those days, when gender was unknown, you referred to "he or his", though most of the workforce was women.)

    I think sharing is fine and I am glad people enjoyed it as I did.  You have the citation, which I think should be included, but the author is not identified for sure.  Regards, Kathy

    Great find, Kathy!  I enjoyed reading this editorial.  As we have currently tried to make others aware of our role in health care, especially, in times of crises, I and others of us have realized that this is definitely an ongoing process.  Thanks for sharing.

    Aloha Kathy.
    In the midst of national disasters, medical laboratory professionals are there to support both healthcare and public health. We must remind the public we have been there since our earliest days as a profession and will continue to diligently provide our vital work before, during, and after disasters. We need to toot our horn more. May I share this article in my feed? Mahalo -- Sheri
