Shavada Roary, second-year professional phase student in the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), recently was awarded the Richard Early Award by the North Carolina Section of the American Society of Clinical Chemistry.
The award is given to a CLS student identified by their program faculty for his or her excellent academic work and potential shown in the area of clinical chemistry. The award was created to honor Dr. Richard Early, a nationally recognized clinical chemist with numerous contributions to science and scholarly work. Early presented the award to Roary at a North Carolina Section’s professional meeting in May.
The N.C. Section is one of 21 within the American Society of Clinical Chemistry, an international scientific and medical society of clinical laboratory professionals, physicians, research scientists and others involved with clinical chemistry and related disciplines. The organization annually holds the world’s largest lab medicine conference with nearly 20,000 participants from more than 100 countries.
