It's #MedicalLaboratoryProfessionalsWeek & we're celebrating by highlighting the AFMS - Sheppard 82d Medical Group lab techs on this week's #SheppardProfile!

When we go to the doctor's office, we interact with doctors and nurses, but not those testing our blood or bodily fluids. In this Sheppard Profile, we went behind the scenes...in the medical lab.
