Join the ASLM2023

#EmbracingLabChange Challenge!

Are you ready to ignite the future of African healthcare and be part of something groundbreaking? ASLM is excited to launch its #EmbracingLabChange Social Media Challenge, kicking off on Friday, 6 October and running until Thursday, 30 November!


As we gear up for our ground-breaking conference in Cape Town from 12 – 15 December 2023 under the theme ‘Shaping Laboratory Systems and Diagnostic Services for the 21st Century: Embracing Change,’ we invite you to join the conversation that will help shape the future of laboratory medicine and African healthcare.

🚀 The Challenge: It’s simple! Just share a fun photo along with a brief message envisioning the future of laboratory medicine, or how you or your team are a part of that future.

Here's how to participate:

📸 Snap a photo of yourself or with colleagues – whether it's your workplace, college, a social gathering, in the laboratory, or at an event. Show us where you shine!

✍️ Hold a sign with the hashtag #EmbracingLabChange and develop a short, compelling message about the future of laboratory medicine and Africa’s healthcare.

📢 Your message should be concise and engaging, around 10 words, and include the #EmbracingLabChange hashtag and #ASLM2023 hashtag.

🌐 Share your photo and message on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn using your social media handles. Don’t forget to tag ASLM's official social media accounts in your post as follows: (Facebook) @ASLM_news (Twitter) and @ASLM (LinkedIn).


What's Next? We'll be closely monitoring your #EmbracingLabChange Challenge submissions and share them on ASLM's social media platforms and in the ASLM2023 Opening Day video.

Check out the Molecular Diagnostic Lab Gombe’s kick-off post above for a better idea of what this looks like. Below are a few additional examples to spark your creativity:
