Welcome to the ASCLS-OK webpage.  We are glad you stopped by.  With the unsettling times in the health care industry, it is wonderful that we have a professional society that cares for its membership and field.  Please take a moment and see who our current officers and board members are, along with the New Professional and Student Representative. 

Make a note that the One Voice Annual ASLCS-OK and OKSSAMT Joint Meeting will be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 at St. Francis Hospital, Tulsa, OK.  If you have any questions, comments, etc., please contact me or one of the board members.  We are looking to have a great year here in Oklahoma!
