Best of AACC Middle East

March 23–24
Rosewood Hotel, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Best of AACC aims to make AACC’s latest scientific and educational content more accessible to laboratory medicine professionals across the globe. In 2016, this program held three conferences in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and in Shanghai and Shenzhen, China.

Our first stop for 2017 is in the UAE for Best of AACC Middle East, which will feature a selection of timely topics in laboratory medicine presented by experts Andrea Ferreira-Gonzalez, PhD; Rodney W. Forsman; and Jeanne Mumford, MT (ASCP). The subjects they will discuss include:

  • Advances in noninvasive applications for personalized diagnostics.
  • Expanding point-of-care testing in healthcare systems.
  • Designing a plan for improving efficiency and accuracy in the lab to add value to clinicians and ultimately patient care.
  • Cultivating a healthy lab leadership team.
