Congressman Tom Perriello Visits MJH Pathology Lab

4-13-10 Congressman Tom Perriello who represents the 5th District of Virginia visited Martha Jefferson Hospital for a tour of the pathology and clinical lab on April 13, 2010. The congressman received a guided tour headed by the four pathologists of Charlottesville Pathology Associates- Drs. Laura Spinelli, R. Hunt Macmillan, David Rowe, and Thomas Dudley.  During the tour, Congressman Perriello observed the process of how a pathology slide is prepared and spoke to many of the laboratory technologists that take part in that process. The visit ended in the clinical laboratory where the group toured the MJH Blood Bank, Microbiology Lab, Contract Office, and Central Receiving.  The NBC news affiliate interviewed the Congressman in the clinical lab and aired the spot on the evening news.  The visit was scheduled to kick off the festivities of National Laboratory Professional Week at MJH.
