Pueblo Fall Seminar, Save the Date!

The Pueblo Fall Seminar is a Southern Colorado event typically held at Parkview Medical Center or St. Mary-Corwin in Pueblo, Colorado. This year it will be held on October 26th at the St. Mary-Corwin in the SMC Cancer Center. This unique convention is held annually and offers the participants an opportunity to earn up to 6.0 continuing education credits. The education will usually cover general areas of the lab that include Chemistry, Hematology, Urinalysis, Immunology, Blood Bank, Pathology/Histology, Coagulation, and Microbiology. The convention also offers a fun atmosphere where colleagues can converse and discuss the rigorous tests and current challenges that modern labs are faced with these days.
We hope to see you all there!

P2P Networking Events for NBS

The Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE) is in the process of creating a regional peer-to-peer network across Colorado for newborn screening (NBS). As part of this effort, we will be hosting four upcoming events across the state. These events are the program’s attempt to seed a regional peer-to-peer network for NBS.

Details for each event can be found using the links below. Space is limited, so registration is required. A “register” button should appear on each linked web page.

Our ultimate goal is to create a sustainable peer-to-peer network that will raise awareness about newborn screening and help to drive best practices in each region of Colorado. We hope the audience at these events will include colleagues from all parts of the broader NBS system — state lab staff, hospital lab staff, specialists, pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurses, midwives, couriers, IT specialists, parents, etc.

Funding for these events is being provided by a grant from NewSTEPs 360 awarded to the CO and WY NBS Programs. The event in Fort Collins on August 14th will include our colleagues from Wyoming.
