NCB-AALAS Happy Hour

February 1, 2018 — Sponsored by Tecniplast

Dear Animal Technicians: At Tecniplast, we think YOU ROCK!

Have you ever wondered how Principal Investigators would carry out their research if Animal Technicians didn't exist? Animal Technicians are Rock Stars! They work behind the scenes to ensure the animals have a proper care; they contribute to advances in human and animal health working hard, showing dedication and compassion; and yes, they ROCK!

Tecniplast greatly values their contribution to lab animal science and was happy to go above and beyond to support Tech Week 2018. We sent gifts to more than 60 organizations and broke a record providing almost 3,000 pieces for the technicians nationwide.

On Thursday, February 1st, we sponsored the NCAB Tech Week Happy Hour at Teeth San Francisco where everybody had the chance to enjoy great food, have fun, and relax.

The Usual Suspects

Send us your photos from NCB-AALAS events, along with brief notes on names places and happenings so we can record some history together. Our generous volunteer directors have been so busy running events like the annual Educational Symposium that we miss recording the actual day. So let's do it individually and gather pix from cell phones that were on scene! Send the goods to Carl at web services.

We would not get through a day at work without facilities, products, and services from our trusted professional vendors, and don't forget the generous Institutional Sponsors who bless us with support.
