The ASCP Patient Champions program focuses on teaching patients and caregivers about the laboratory so they can better understand their options and choose the treatments that work best for them. Receiving a serious diagnosis can be life-changing. Patients and their caregivers can help take control of their treatment and care options by learning everything they can about a diagnosis, which includes laboratory and pathology results. ASCP Patient Champions not only advocate for themselves, they share what they’ve learned to empower others to do the same. Empowered patients are essential to create optimal health care worldwide.
