The mission of the ASCT Foundation is to support and enhance special programs of the Society by funding awards, publications and other projects that promote the advancement of cytotechnology.
"It was truly an honor to be recognized by my peers when I was awarded the very prestigious 2015 Holmquist Cytotechnologist Achievement Award. Winning this award would not have been possible without the inspiration I have received by having the opportunity to serve the profession for many years with wonderful colleagues at ASCT and ASCT Services. I hope the enthusiasm I have for this profession is carried on by those coming into the field and those continuiing in the field as we look at a very different and unique future for Cytology. Thank you to the ASCT Foundation for such an honor".
