"Sarasota Pathology and Sarasota Memorial Hospital play an important role in the effort to meet the community's health care needs," said Congressman Buchanan. "I look forward to visiting their labs and discussing healthcare issues affecting my constituents."

Dr. White said the tour will highlight important trends in diagnostic healthcare and will provide an opportunity to demonstrate the critical role medical laboratories provide in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
