Acutis Diagnostics excitedly celebrated ASCP’s Medical Laboratory Professionals Week from April 18th-24th, 2021.
Lab Week, an annual event that has become a team Acutis favorite, is a celebration of medical laboratory professionals who play a vital role in healthcare and patient advocacy. Fittingly, this year’s Lab Week theme was “Avengers of the Laboratory.” Following a particularly challenging year for laboratory and other healthcare professionals around the globe, a commemoration of the hard work accomplished was welcome by all.
Lab Week planning was conducted by the Acutis Social Responsibility Response Committee (SRRC) and included daily themes, meals, and interactive activities that concluded with a Team BBQ at our Hicksville headquarters. From Acutis Jeopardy to a “Lab Olympics” relay race to an outdoor Water Pong Tournament, exciting events allowed staff to team build and socialize while still maintaining COVID-19 safety standards through precautionary procedures. Remote teams were also able to participate from afar through multiple remote group-specific events, including a week-long virtual scavenger hunt and themed dress-up competitions.
Lab Week 2021 was a fun, memorable experience for all involved. We would like to thank our partners who sponsored our team’s activities during this year’s Lab Week celebration:
Thermo Fisher Scientific J&J Distributors
Agilent Technologies Eppendorf
Millipore Sigma Cerini & Associates, LLP
Mercedes Scientific RPG Consultants
VWR Waveland Technologies
Nixon Peabody LLP Stat Experts
Team Acutis hopes that all laboratory teams across the nation were able to take some well-earned time to celebrate their unprecedented accomplishments over the past year, as well as to inspire their team members to continue their life-saving work in the future.
Team Acutis continued to battle the “novel coronavirus” villain.
