Hot Topics:

The South Central Association for Clinical Microbiology (SCACM) was formed to fill the need to produce better informed microbiologists.

The Association started with a small group of microbiologists who had attended a class together and wanted to keep in touch. They enthusiastically planned and conducted the first meeting of the Association. It was held in Columbus, Indiana (located in the south central region of the state) on October 2-3, 1970. It was well received by 35-40 attendees. Since then the group has grown to close to 1,000 members, primarily from but not limited to, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia.

The goals of the association include: promoting scientific knowledge of Clinical Microbiology through communication, improving education, encouraging scientific investigation, and gaining higher recognition in the field of Clinical Microbiology.

Each year, SCACM representatives judge the state or regional Science Fairs held in each of the six states, and present Science Fair Awards to deserving students.

Membership in the Association is open to anyone interested in the field of Microbiology and consists of Medical Technologists, Laboratory Technicians, M.D.'s, Ph.D.'s, Microbiologists, and Commercial Representatives.
