NAACLS (National Accrediting Agency for Clinical 
Laboratory Sciences), which accredits HT and HTL
programs, will have a booth in the exhibit area of the
NSH Symposium this year in Charlotte, NC!!!

This is the first time NAACLS is having a booth at the 
NSH symposium, due in part to the large interest in the 
US in starting HT/HTL programs.

Olive Kimball, Chief Executive Officer of NAACLS, and 
Allen Turner, Staff Program Coordinator for HT/HTL 
programs at NAACLS, will be at the NAACLS booth 
starting Sunday 10 am through Tuesday at 12 noon. 
They will be there to answer questions about how to 
set up a HT/HTL program, what are essentials, what 
are the costs, what are the advantages of having a 
NAACLS accredited program, what are the criteria 
for program directors, etc. 

In addition, there will also be some NSH members at 
the booth for part of the time, who have been/are 
involved with NAACLS and/or  HT/HTL schools, 
to help answer questions, also, from personal
- John Ryan, former NSH representative to NAACLS
- Robert Lott, present NSH representative to NAACLS
- Peggy Wenk, HT and HTL program director

The NAACLS booth will be located on the back wall,
towards the left side, when you enter the exhibit area.
