The laboratory touches many aspects of our healthcare. Many of the tests conducted occur frequently, whether we are healthy or already diagnosed with an illness. When you go to the doctor’s office for a routine checkup or wellness visit, the blood or specimens collected are sent to the lab and analyzed by pathologists and laboratory professionals. The tests performed by the lab help ensure the proper management of our health or any existing diagnoses that we are living with. Our Patient Champions who have been diagnosed with common conditions found out about any potential or existing health complications from lab work.
