"This award given by the ASHP Foundation is an eternally inspiring moment for me. It is great to know that when you feel that it is important enough to address things in the literature that others, including such notable organizations as ASHP, feel the same way. At this early stage in my career, getting recognized like this is truly indescribable and adds a boost of fuel to my internal drive to make valuable contributions to organizations like ASHP and society through benchside-to-bedside research."
