CHICAGO, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- How has one of the worst natural disasters in American history helped shape and advance global health initiatives through pathology? How did serendipity play a part in discovering the cause of ulcers and gastric cancer? What does the future hold for developments in lung cancer research and diagnosis?

These and a host of other questions will be answered as some 700 members of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) gather in New Orleans to explore "The Heart and Science of Pathology," Oct 18 - 21 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. The ASCP is the largest member organization dedicated to the advancement of the entire field of pathology; this year's meeting will draw on both national and international expertise in more than 125 in-depth educational and inspirational programs.

ASCP is also concerned about the people of New Orleans and the rebirth of the city. During the month of October, ASCP is sponsoring a silent auction for the United Way Workforce Project, which benefits residents of the city who have no medical insurance.
