Throughout 2012, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) will be exploring best laboratory practices for detecting and managing four high-prevalence disease states (cardiac, diabetes, kidney and thyroid) during 12 monthly, 60-minute Webinars called the "High-Value Tests for High-Impact Diseases" series.

The Cardiac 3-Pack includes Analytical and Clinical Issues Regarding Contemporary and hs-TNI Assays, Biomarkers of Heart Failure: Current Status and Future Promise March, and The Role of Biomarkers of Inflammation in Cardiovascular Disease.

The Diabetes/Glucose Control 3-Pack includes The Pros and Cons of Using HbA1c for Diabetes Diagnosis, Glucose Meter Accuracy and Glycemic Control: How Good is Good Enough?, and New Recommendations for Diagnosis of Hyperglycemia in Pregnancy.

The Kidney Disease/AKI 3-Pack includes Biomarkers for CKD: Glomerular Filtration and Progression of Kidney Disease, Biomarkers for Chronic Kidney Disease: Urine Albumin and Multi-markers, and Biomarkers for Acute Kidney Injury: Now and the Future.

The Thyroid Disease 3-Pack includes Thyroid Testing: Pros and Cons of Immunoassay and Mass Spectrometry, Effective Laboratory Testing for Thyroid Health during Pregnancy, and Role of Clinical Lab Testing in Diagnosis and Management of Thyroid Cancer.
