CLSI started to celebrate early this year by hosting a contest in which lab professionals could enter to win a party for their lab. The contest required participants to share their “journey to quality management” with us. We had over 75 amazing submissions from various organizations from around the world.
After a lot of deliberation, we selected the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Laboratories as our winner. Martha Boehme, Manager of Quality Assurance, submitted the entry on behalf of her organization. She also asked to acknowledge Dr. Sandip Shah, Laboratory Director, for supporting the staff’s ideas and Ms. Keri Fisher, one of the laboratory scientists who was instrumental in designing their lab’s Nonconforming Events program.
