Kay Doyle, interim dean of the School of Health and Environment, was featured in the latest quarterly journal published by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) “Critical Values.”

The laboratory workforce shortage was the theme of the issue. ASCP President, Lee H. Hillborne, MD, wrote in the introduction, “As individuals, we cannot rely exclusively on our professional organizations to solve the problem. We can and must take steps of our own. Kay Doyle knows how to motivate people to act locally; her list of action items may give you some ideas.”

The article is excerpted from Doyle’s presentation to the April meeting of the Massachusetts Association of Blood Banks ߝ “The Clinical Lab Scientist Shortage: What You Can Do About It!”

The mission of the American Society for Clinical Pathology is to provide excellence in education, certification and advocacy on behalf of patients, pathologists and laboratory professionals.

Since its founding in 1922, ASCP has been the leader in pathology and laboratory medicine. The society’s influence has guided the evolution and maturation of this medical specialty. ASCP is unique among pathology organizations in that its inclusive membership unites pathologists and laboratory professionals to advance the profession.
