BY: Senator HANNON

MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
April 23-29, 2017, as Medical Laboratory
Professionals Week in the State of New York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that those who
give outstanding service to the people of this Empire State and whose
extraordinary achievements save lives and keep people healthy profoundly
strengthen our shared commitment to family and community life; and

WHEREAS, In conjunction with the observance of National Medical
Laboratory Professionals Week, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 23-29, 2017, as
Medical Laboratory Professionals Week in the State of New York; and

WHEREAS, Medical Laboratory Professionals Week is an annual
celebration of the laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a
vital role in every aspect of health care; and

WHEREAS, Lab Week is a time to honor the more than 300,000 medical
laboratory professionals around the country who perform and interpret
more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States every year;
and

WHEREAS, As of one of the largest industries in the United States,
the dedicated efforts of laboratory professionals often go unnoticed by
the general public, as well as by the very institutions employing their
services; and

WHEREAS, With the public now demanding the assurance of quality
health care and professional accountability, the essential role of the
medical laboratory professional has increased significantly; and

WHEREAS, Americans benefit daily from the knowledge and skills of
these highly trained individuals and it is appropriate to recognize the
value and accomplishments of medical laboratory professionals by
designating a special week in their honor; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 23-29, 2017, as
Medical Laboratory Professionals Week in the State of New York; and be
it further

RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
New York, and Tess Smith, President of the New York Chapter of the
American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science.
