WASHINGTON – AACC, a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to better health through laboratory medicine, is pleased to announce that it has been honored with a 2015 ASAE Power of A Gold Award for Lab Tests Online.
Lab Tests Online is a health information web resource designed to help patients, caregivers, and medical professionals understand the many lab tests that are a vital part of medical care. Laboratory professionals, who are experts in the field, develop and review all content, including articles on lab tests, conditions/diseases, screening, clinical laboratory topics, and lab test news.
Lab Tests Online is available in 14 languages through 17 country sites and the content on each site is translated and adapted to policy and practice specific to that country. Countries with Lab Tests Online sites include the United States, Australia, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
“Congratulations to AACC for helping make the world a better place,” said Hugh “Mac” Cannon, MPA, CAE, Executive Director of ACEC of Metropolitan Washington, and chair of the Power of A Awards Judging Committee. “Their program exemplifies how associations make a difference every day – not just to the industry or profession they represent, but to society at large.”
