NSH 41st Annual Symposium/Convention

NSH is excited to bring the 41st Annual Symposium/Convention to the Nation's Capital, August 28-September 2, 2015. The NSH Symposium/Convention is the event for histotechnologists to discover new methods, share best practices and preview what the latest vendors have to offer.  This year we will be featuring our new 60 minute troubleshooting workshops along with other opportunities in our 90 minute and 3 hour workshops.  The convention offers a chance to network with other histology professionals over a fun and exciting six days of workshops, exhibits, general sessions, hospitalities and more.
