Mar 07, 2018

Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 22-28, is just a few weeks away. Is your lab ready? If you’re still looking for activities and lab gift ideas, just ask Troy Krieger, MS, MLS(ASCP)CMSCYMCM. The private pathology practice where he works with five pathologists and 14 medical laboratory professionals provide the following for their employees:

-A Lab Week Coupon for two hours of paid time off.
-A one-hour massage session from a certified massage therapist.
-A catered lunch.
-Employee awards.
-Tickets to concerts, art showings and movies.
-Gift cards to local eateries, local stores and Amazon.
-Lab Week spirit wear.
-Small gift bags and treats provided throughout the week.

“I love my job, and I love the fact that I learn something new every day,” said Krieger, who works in the Flow Cytometry Laboratory at Yellowstone Pathology Institute, Inc., in Billings, MT. “It is never boring! Being in a small private practice is a great experience that I would not change for the world.

“The fact that this small practice provides such specialized testing for all of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming gives me a sense of accomplishment for providing accurate and timely patient results to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.”
