National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 22–28, 2007, is a time to recognize the approximately 265,000 medical laboratory professionals and 15,000 board-certified pathologists who play a vital function in every aspect of health care. Since the development of this career group in the 1920s, the clinical laboratory science professional has played an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and prevention of disease. Today, the clinical laboratorian is a key member of a health care team.
