2013 ASCP Regional Member Award Recipients Announced
Monday, September 9, 2013
ASCP established the Regional Member Awards in 1993 as a way to recognize laboratory professional members for their commitment to the profession—a commitment demonstrated through their work and their outstanding service in support of ASCP at the local level. One award is given annually in each of the eight U.S. regions. Recipients must be ASCP members actively engaged in their region in laboratory management, research, or education endeavors.
“The Regional Member Award recipients are, collectively, a group of individuals who represent the best of our ASCP laboratory professional members.”
—Jack A. Hager, MS, MT(ASCP), SBB

“These individuals have been nominated by their peers for the Regional Member Awards, and we are very pleased that they will be receiving the awards at the Barbara Castleberry Lecture at ASCP 2013 Chicago,” Mr. Hager says. The lecture begins at 3:15 p.m. Sept. 20, 2013.
