Summary: "You're pregnant or you're not...not a lot of sophistication has to go into the interpretation of that test." -- Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos, The New Yorker December 14 ,2014. Is HCG really that simple? We'll go back to the basics and look at both common and less common pitfalls in this very common test. When does a pregnancy test go positive? Should you test urine or serum? What can cause a false positive? Or a false negative?

MLA Days can be held anywhere in BC. If you are interested in helping BCSLS put on an MLA Education Day in your area or region? BCSLS will support you and your local committee, by taking care of all of the registration, accounting, promotion (website, emailing) and printing. The office has the templates for confirmation letters, promotion emails, reminder letters, thank-you letters, etc….
The local organizing committee (usually two or three people) will need to choose the date, find the four speakers, order coffee and lunch, and book the location.
We find that a good time year for these MLA Days are in March or April. Organizing needs to start 3-4 months beforehand.
IF you are interested in organizing an MLA Day in your region, please contact the BCSLS office. We will be happy to help make it a success.
