“My ASCP membership is very important to me. It provides insight I can’t get anywhere else, with access to new evidence-based findings in science to assist me in my growth as a member and also to pass along my knowledge and experience to junior professionals. But it doesn’t stop there—transcending career development to help improve my performance and judgement. I know without doubt that the benefits of ASCP membership presented by the many available programs available are of great value to any professional that wishes to grow in their profession.”

Amberly Nunez, MD, FASCP
“I renew my membership with ASCP yearly because I truly believe that we, as a laboratory community, are ‘Stronger Together.’ In order for us to make any advancements or significant changes to our professions and to the quality of patient care we must unite and become one voice. Membership in ASCP is also a way for me to remain current on the most up-to-date practice changes, review and refresh my knowledge with CME products such as PRISE, and develop meaningful relationships with other pathologists and laboratory professionals across the country via ASCP volunteer committees and councils.”
