Experience ASCLS Hawaii
One Voice One Vision
ASCLS Hawaii wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
ASCLS Hawaii is a constituent state society of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS). We promote standards in clinical laboratory methods and research in affiliated fields, enhance the professional status and image of our members, are responsible for providing educational programs in the clinical laboratory and related sciences and defining standards of competence at all levels, and are responsible for determining entry level requirements and providing appropriate credentialing.
Advocacy for our Laboratorians
Our primary goal is to advocate for our profession and our patients. We do this by representing the interests of the clinical laboratory and affiliated professions and members of the Society in all government and other forums that affect these interests and being involved in national and state legislation and promoting licensure for all medical laboratory professionals.
ASCLS HI will host a remote presentation by Gloria Shishido on "Communication Science Effectively." As clinical laboratory professionals we often encounter questions and inaccurate information about our work. Gloria will give us guidelines on how to effectively communicate to educate the general communitty and other health professionals.
More information will be available in early January.
We want to provide educational opportunities to students, future students, non-laboratory professionals and patients.
