Gathering of First-Time Attendees | 65th Annual Scientific Meeting in Phoenix, AZ

This year, as part of the Gathering for First-Time Attendees session at the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington DC, the Membership Committee plans to gift cytopathology textbooks to select first-time trainee/student attendees. Last year, the book drawing was part of the Spin the Wheel event and received high praise! The success of this event is made possible by the generous donations of senior ASC members and authors/editors/publishers.

The Membership Committee appeals to ASC members and supporters to donate one or two new textbooks for the 2018 Meeting.  Your contributions are a perfect opportunity to enhance training the next generation of cytotechnologists and cytopathologists who will be at the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting in November.

Donations can be made with a personal message, business card or anonymously.  All donated books should be shipped on or before September 30, 2018 to:

American Society of Cytopathology
100 West 10th Street, Suite 605
Wilmington, Delaware 19801

Additionally, if any international trainee/student members plan to attend the Annual Scientific Meeting this year and needs a specific cytopathology textbook, we will try to match donated books to your requests. Please let us know your request via email prior to September 30, 2018.

We greatly appreciate your donations and continued support of the ASC. Please feel free to contact us or Jen Wallace ( if you have any concerns or questions.

Thank you!
