Welcome from ACLA President

Letter from the ACLA President

We live in a remarkable age.

Diseases and chronic health conditions that used to mean pain, suffering and shortened lives no longer hold such deadly power over humanity. With prompt testing and state-of-the-art treatment, we have heightened our ability to prevent and control illness and maintain good health.

This is a story that needs to be told, and it’s the reason the American Clinical Laboratory Association and its partners have launched the Results For Life campaign.

This is an initiative that will bring forward compelling stories of people who have triumphed over disease. And it will offer valuable information that can help more Americans take steps to preserve and protect their health.

We also encourage national policymakers to pay attention to the messages embodied in the Results For Life campaign. Critical debates are taking place right now, debates that will affect the quality and accessibility of health care for Americans today and generations to come.

We urge members of Congress to take steps to emphasize prevention, to embrace innovation, to generate healthy outcomes, and to advocate the cost-efficiency that comes from achieving better health.

Welcome to the Results For Life website, and thank you for sharing our vision of a healthier America.

Alan Mertz
