Innovative teaching method earns prestigious grant for SAHP

Traditionally, when cytology is taught, it’s done at the microscope.

Amber Donnelly, PhD, MPH, SCT(ASCP), was selected to receive the American Society of Cytopathology Foundation’s Investigator Grant.
The Award consists of a two-year, $50,000 grant with quarterly payments beginning January 2014. Applications were reviewed by a panel selected by the ASC Foundation Board.
The grant winner will be announced during the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando.
Congratulations, Dr. Donnelly!
Please bring your tennis shoes every Tuesday, September 17 through the end of October, and meet members of the SAHP Wellness Committee on the 3rd Floor of Bennett Hall at noon for a brief ( 10 to 30 minutes) walk during lunch time. If the weather permits, the walks take us outdoors, otherwise, we’ll use the tunnels.
Take a break, it’s good for you!
