Thank You to LifeLabs
Posted January 13th, 2015 by webadmin
We would like to thank our newest corporate sponsor, LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services, for their recent contribution of $2000. LifeLabs performs over 100 million tests annually, supporting over 19 million patient visits. LifeLabs operates 359 collection centres and 20 laboratories, and employs approximately 5,400 people.
Support from LifeLabs will help the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society (CHS) further awareness of the disorder, foster health promotion and disease prevention, improve health literacy and build stronger communities.
“At LifeLabs, it is our mission to help health care providers diagnose, treat, monitor and prevent disease in patients. We are committed to providing convenient access to laboratory testing services designed to deliver better outcomes in health care,” says Mitchell Toker, Director, Public Affairs. “For this reason, we hope our donation to the CHS will help raise awareness for HHC and encourage initial and ongoing testing for this condition, allowing patients and their health care providers to identify and manage this disease.”
CHS’ relationship with LifeLabs will lead to increased testing, diagnoses, and lifelong management for many of the 115,000 Canadians at risk for hereditary hemochromatosis. CHS hopes to build similar relationships with other biomedical testing organizations like LifeLabs in the near future.
