AACC recently issued a position statement on personalized medicine(PM). Much
has been written about the emergence of a more individualized approach to
medicine. Patients often present with
a variety of symptoms for the same disease and react differently to the same
laboratory will play an ...
was speaking to a friend who was complaining about how busy and tired she was
this summer. In addition to working full time on the evening shift she has been shuttling kids to
activities and summer camp. She has a seriously
packed schedule which starts early in the morning and goes all day..
can’t wait for the kids ...
are differences all around us: at work, in society, and even in our own family
or circle of friends. We tend to focus on the differences a lot. Just look at
the news and see how all of societal ills are being blamed on those who are different

made up of younger individuals. The interesting thing about different generations
working together is that values and even work ethics will vary. Oldsters (Boomers

recently saw a discussion on a Medical Laboratory page on a popular social networking
site. Someone started off a thread detailing an encounter with a nurse in which
a request was made that was so ludicrous it was funny. Others weighed in with
accounts of their personal experiences: mostly questions or requests from

comfortable sharing space and projects with colleagues who are like ...
