Join us for a hybrid conference – in-person or virtually at the home of the College in London, together with The British Society for Haematology (BSH) and The Pathologist our event sponsors.
We are delighted to announce our special guest, Dr Michael Ryan, Executive Director, WHO Health Emergencies Programme, who will be joining us virtually to open the conference with a keynote address. Dr Ryan will share his experience of being at the forefront of managing acute risks to global health for nearly 25 years.
The conference's theme is `Adapting laboratory medicine to global developments and challenges.’ Over several decades, pathology specialties have used therapeutic and preventative solutions to manage health crises worldwide, such as tackling sudden and novel infectious disease outbreaks while also preparing for how pathology can prepare for future health crises.
Capacity building to develop and strengthen local health systems through training and educating health workers, particularly medical scientists, and pathologists, in partnership with organisations and international volunteers will also be a main feature of the conference
You will also hear from experts from India, the UK, and the Tropical Health Education Trust (THET).
The contribution and achievements of pathology and laboratory medicine services that address global health challenges and improve the health outcomes of global communities have been recognised and celebrated by pathology and laboratory medicine institutions worldwide on International Pathology Day since it launched in 2014. We look forward to continuing this tradition this year as part of the College’s Diamond Jubilee’s celebrations.
