Labvocate Ambassadors are medical laboratory professions who have agreed to actively engage with their members of Congress by:

  • educating Congress about the roles of a medical laboratory professional
  • informing Congress on legislative issues impacting medical laboratory services
  • serving as a trusted, reliable resource for information related to medical laboratory concerns
  • elevating awareness of ASCLS and the medical laboratory profession, and
  • developing close relationships with Members of Congress and their staffs.

Congressional advocacy centers on relationship building and the best messengers on legislative issues are the constituents that lawmakers are elected to serve. Members of Congress rely on constituent outreach to guide their positions and they value your expertise in the policymaking process. You have a story to tell, and your members of Congress want to hear from you.

ASCLS will notify you of advocacy opportunities throughout the year. We will help you build and sustain relationships with your federal lawmakers so that your members of Congress can see the important role of medical laboratory professionals.
