The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) serves the public by accrediting and approving programs that prepare competent professionals in the clinical laboratory sciences. A key component of NAACLS’ mission is peer evaluation and achieving this mission depends on the commitment and professional expertise from a wide variety of volunteers. The NAACLS Distinguished Service Award is the highest honor that NAACLS confers upon volunteers that have made extraordinary contributions to NAACLS and its mission. The Distinguished Service Award was created to express the profound gratitude of NAACLS for the tireless service and immeasurable dedication contributed by these often “unsung” volunteers.
