Dr. Shirley Parker Levine has
received the 2009 Exemplary Service Award
for her outstanding service to ASH as the chair of the Teaching Cases
Subcommittee. This award was established in 1998 to recognize an individual
whose exemplary service, extending over a period of years, has significantly
advanced the interests of the Society.
Dr. Levine has been the Teaching Cases’ strongest
advocate, working closely with the Committee on Educational Affairs. Over the last
three years, Dr. Levine took the lead in identifying members who were willing
to review and update the existing cases and develop new cases on the topics
identified by the group. She also helped coordinate the group’s regular review
schedule and worked closely with staff and a consultant to ensure that all the
cases were appropriate for students, useful as an introduction to a variety of
hematologic disorders, and internally consistent.
Dr. Levine will be stepping down as chair at the end of
this year. She recently retired from her position at Albert Einstein College of
Medicine at Yeshiva
University, where she was
the associate chair for undergraduate education in the Department of Medicine.
ASH thanks Dr. Levine for her many years of dedicated service.
