HYMC Laboratory Helps to Beautify Hospital Grounds in Celebration of Earth Day
The Howard Young Medical Center Laboratory Staff planted lilac bushes on Thursday, April 22, in honor of Earth Day, to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment.
The lilac bushes, donated to the Laboratory by Lisa Michaelis-Alft, Laboratory Director, were planted on the south side of Howard Young Medical Center.
“Each year, the laboratory staff hosts an activity or event to celebrate National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, held this year April 18 – 24,” said Michaelis-Alft. “The staff had a wonderful idea to pursue a project in conjunction with Earth Day. After seeing their excitement for this project, I decided to donate lilac bushes, in appreciation of their hard work and dedication.”
The Howard Young Medical Center laboratory has over 400 years of combined experience among the team of Medical Technologists, Histologists, Pathologists, phlebotomists, and secretaries. The clinical laboratory professional is a key member of today’s health care team.
