"Thank you ASCT Foundation for allowing me to be part of the annual ASCT conference in Scottsdale. I had a wonderful time further learning about the profession and talking to other cytotechnologists from across the U.S. about their ever-evolving role in cytology. I'm grateful to be an ASCT member and like the new motto says 'Keep calm and cytology on.' "
