About the Mendelson Award:
The Robin H. Mendelson Memorial Award was established in 1971 to commemorate a courageous young man who struggled for five years with kidney dialysis and two transplants during the infancy of transplant technology. The award honors outstanding service and contributions to ASCLS, the ASCLS Education and Research Fund, and the Clinical Laboratory Science profession.
We thank Dianne for her 16+ years of service to NAACLS and wish her a long and healthy retirement!
