Snyder receives lifetime achievement award from American Society for Clinical Pathology
John R. Snyder, PhD, dean and director at The Ohio State University at Lima, received the 2010 American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Member Lifetime Achievement Award for his commitment to the profession through his accomplishments, spirit and society activities.
The ASCP provides excellence in education, certification and advocacy on behalf of patients, pathologists and laboratory professionals. It is the world’s largest society of pathologists and lab professionals and has guided the evolution and maturation of this medical specialty to ensure the long-term strength and viability of the profession.
A member since the early 1980s, Snyder has served with distinction on the ASCP Board of Directors, the ASCP Finance Committee and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Advisory Group, which was part of a $15 billion U.S. government commitment toward HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention.
During his career, Snyder’s scholarship and teaching have focused on allied health education and clinical laboratory management. Snyder is a tenured professor in the School of Allied Medical Professions in the College of Medicine at Ohio State and teaches in addition to his administrative duties.
