Don Henderson Award
The Don Henderson Award is presented annually at the Schools Science Conference, an event which ACB member Don Henderson was instrumental in establishing. The event celebrated its tenth anniversary in March 2013, and is held in collaboration with the Royal College of Pathologists, Institute of Biomedical Science and Labs Are Vital initiative.
The event is one of the ways the ACB promotes itself to the wider community, explaining the work done by healthcare sciences and laboratory medicine and encouraging young people to take an interest in science and careers in the health services.
In 2011 the ACB agreed to sponsor an award in the name of Don Henderson consisting of an annual award of book tokens and presentation of a shield to the school making the best report and presentation on a piece of research they have undertaken.
