Highlights From Past Event

COLA's first annual Laboratory Enrichment Forum in Charlotte, North Carolina was a great success. This event was able to bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry to share the latest developments in laboratory science, along with the essentials of CLIA compliance and accreditation. 

2022 attendees agree that the Laboratory Enrichment Forum was an excellent opportunity to keep up with changes in the field and to have meaningful discussions about the profession’s future.
