The MAY Pathology Spotlight is on:

On May 13 and 14, the Association of Clinical Scientists (ACS) held its annual meeting virtually. Abstracts were presented by young investigators and Dr. Norah Alghamdi was selected for the Young Clinical Scientist Award. The Award will officially be presented next year at the ACS Louisville meeting. The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine is preparing to sponsor the 2022 ACS Annual Meeting in Louisville next year (postponed from this year due to Covid-19). This is an opportunity to showcase and highlight the department’s clinical and research activities on a national stage. Read more about Dr. Alghamdi's presentation. 

Dr. Claire Meena-Leist was interviewed by local news outlet WDRB during UofL Health's "Stop the Bleed" training. She explained how important blood donation is to our community, especially during rising gun violence, the COVID-19 pandemic and upcoming summer months. Thank you, Dr. Meena-Leist for representing our department and raising awareness! See her full interview!

On May 12th, our Chief Clinical Chemistry Fellow, Dr. Norah Alghamdi, passed her NRCC Chemistry Exam! In case you're wondering, NRCC stands for National Registry of Certified Chemists. This is a huge accomplishment! Congratulations, Norah!
