President's Message Spring 2020
2020 has come in with a bang. Who would've thought that a virus could shutdown the world. Coronavirus has left its mark on all of us in the healthcare system. Some of us have had friends, family and coworkers who tested positive for COVID-19. Some of these have totally recovered from this or have died. I have never in my lifetime seen anything like this. I hope to never see this again but we never know.
This has brought all of the laboratory professionals to the fore front. We have been on the frontline in this and we are getting the recognition of the work that we do behind the scenes.
Since the AMT National Convention has been cancelled for this year but next year will be great since it will be held in Norfolk, Virginia. We can move on toward our state’s educational sessions. Magnolia Educational Treasures will be held in Louisville, KY at the Holiday Inn East 1325 S. Hurstbourne Parkway on October 2-3, 2020. Reservation code is FG5 call (270)426-2600. Please mark your calendars for this. This is our fall educational meeting. Please check out the flyer on the AMT website for more information. The TNSSAMT Board of Directors will be meeting on October 1, 2020 at 6pm (EST). See everyone in October in Louisville, KY.
Have a great Spring and Summer!
Kay Burnett BS, MT (AMT)
