Greetings Labmembers --

In order to try to improve communication and encourage you to use Staff 
as a resource, we will be holding regular "Process Clinics" in the 
bullpen area outside the lab. As opposed to the larger Grand Rounds, 
these will be informal gatherings where labmembers can discuss technical 
issues one-on-one with Staff and each other.  New labmembers are 
especially encouraged to bring their process flows and design layouts 
for feedback, suggestions about equipment choices and training 
logistics.  More experienced labmembers are encouraged to join in on the 
discussions, propose/solicit support for processing related projects, 
make processing requests, etc. 

We will try to make each Clinic topical, but still want to encourage all 
labmembers to bring any process-related issue.  For example, there was 
the Mask Clinic two weeks ago (and by the way, Bill Martin has agreed to 
return on a regular basis, to answer questions and review labmembers' 
files in this forum.)

For the Process Clinic next Monday (4/21), there will an open forum from 
2-3 pm.  At 3 pm, a quorum of SpecMat members will be on hand to review 
any SpecMat requests anyone wishes to make (please be prepared with MSDS 
and other supporting information as appropriate, preferable in 
electronic format for easier database entry.)

So, bring your process questions and SpecMat requests, or just stop on 
by for a chat -- Monday, 4/21, 2-4 pm in the CIS Bullpen area.  Hope to 
see you there!

Your SNF Staff
