Not If, but When: Preparing for the Next Pandemic

In the past three years, we have learned countless lessons on mitigating the spread of a globally invasive virus. The biggest lesson of all? That preparation for the next pandemic starts now. It’s not a question of if there will be another pandemic, but when

The laboratory’s role in curtailing the spread of COVID-19, as well as other diseases that pose a threat to our populations, is imperative to healthcare. It starts with us – the people of the laboratory – to understand and communicate what must be done to prevent another global pandemic from causing so much disruption and destruction.

ASCP went behind the scenes for two docuseries and spoke with pathologists and laboratory professionals to learn more about their takeaways from COVID-19, and how they are preparing for the next pandemic. Now is the time to position the laboratory as the primary source of knowledge and to reinforce our standing as the cornerstone of healthcare. 

I encourage you all to watch episode four of our second docuseries, “The Scientists Who Saved The World,” (see video below) and learn more about how we can be better prepared to lead through the next global challenge.
