In the Critical Point-of-Care-Testing (CPOCT) division, an award is given to an applicant who has made outstanding contributions to the community. The award is peer reviewed and can include several candidates each year. This year the AACC awarded our own Jeanne Mumford, Johns Hopkins Hospital Manager, POCT.
