Subject: Fwd: Lab science gets a new face on Facebook!

  Hello Everyone:  As the semester begins, check out this terrific site.
"Labs are Vital" is on Facebook, with info on careers in all kinds of labs,
scholarship contests, etc. You can download terrific posters to raise
consciousness in your hospitals and your kid's schools. All the best, Dr. L

  Labs Are Vital officially joined the Facebook generation in December. In
an effort to draw future professionals to clinical lab science, Labs Are
Vital has launched a new recruitment campaign on Facebook with information
on educational and career opportunities, and a $2,500 scholarship contest.

  An announcement letter about the Facebook campaign and scholarship
opportunities was also mailed to over 10,000 high school counselors and
science department heads.

  Contest entrants may submit a video, advertisement or T-shirt design that
encourages others to consider careers in laboratory medicine. Semifinalist
submissions will be posted online, where Facebook members will vote on those
that most creatively illustrate why clinical lab science is cutting edge and
how laboratorians make a difference.

  Abbott is joined in this effort by ASCLS, APHL and Blood Systems, Inc.

  Thanks so much to the many of you who participated in our recent Labs Are
Vital survey. The response rate was gratifying. While we are still in the
process of analyzing the data, the top-line response lets us know that the
majority of you have been instrumental in passing the word about Labs Are
Vital, which has resulted in many new members. And your suggestions about
what you would like us to add will only help improve Labs Are Vital and make
it even better in 2008.

  We'll be holding our drawing for 100 Labs Are Vital lab coats in
mid-February, and will announce the winners shortly thereafter. We'll also
be sharing more of the survey results with you-the lab professionals who
keep health care moving forward.
