Please save the date for a combined continuing education event with ASCLS-DE!
In an effort to provide a continuing education event in close proximity to our members in the northeastern corner of the state, we have teamed up with the Delaware chapter to offer 2 free hours of CE just across the state line.
Planning is still underway, but this will be a Saturday morning event with two speakers. Dr. Nadine Fydryszewski from Rutgers University will give a talk on career ladders and graduate opportunities for MLS and Christina Camillo from Salisbury University will speak on massive transfusion protocols.
All ASCLS-MD members are welcome to stay for a planning meeting immediately following.
