And as quickly as the convention is under way, it's over. More than 500 people visited the booth, a very good number for us. But more than quantity, we appreciate the quality of the people who visited us:
Left to right: Pam Nash of the AACC, Gabriel Migliarino (translator), Dr. Westgard, M Laura Parna (verifier), and Sten Westgard. This was part of the crew that put together the Spanish Translation of Basic QC Practices, which received a warm welcome from the convention attendees.
Left to Right: Mac Fancher, head of AACC publications, Sten Westgard, and Joanna Grimes, AACC editor. Mac and Joanna took the translation across that last mile, from document to printed form (and CD).
Randy Young of Labcorp, bracketed by Westgards.
Gabriel Migliarino, Jorge Naya, Dr. Westgard and another Latin American colleague.
Dr. David Armbruster, Scientific Affairs at Abbott Diagnostics, and Sten Westgard. Sten spoke at an Abbott Industry workshop and at the Abbott stage at their booth [full disclosure: Sten was compensated by Abbott to make these presentations]
Once the convention was over, the Westgards retired to a nearby establishment to celebrate and relax.
We thank everyone who took the time to attend one of the Westgard talks, stop by the Westgard booth, or browse one of the Westgard books and products. This was one of the best shows we've had.
Raffle winners will be announced next week, when we return to the office.
