The College of American Pathologists (CAP) recognized LifePoint’s Medical Director, Pathologist Kim Collins, MD, FCAP, with an Excellence in Teaching Award at the CAP’s annual conference, “CAP’14—The Pathologists’ Meeting™”, that was held this week in Chicago.

According to a press release from the College of American Pathologists, “The CAP is pleased to honor Dr. Collins with the Excellence in Teaching Award in recognition of her innovative and engaging teaching techniques as faculty for the CAP annual meeting,” said CAP President Gene N. Herbek, MD, FCAP.

Dr. Collins hopes that her teaching and mentorship have made a difference in the outcomes of cases and patient lives. “I hope that I have inspired peers and young pathologists, just as my mentors have inspired me over the years,” she said. “We must always remember there is a patient behind the specimen and disease, to be a good listener and communicator, to never settle but keep looking for answers, and to teach with patience and a kind heart.”

Dr. Collins states about her position at LifePoint, “It is rewarding to help donor families find closure and recipients across the country find new life and better quality of life.”

The press release adds, that “Dr. Collins’ leadership positions with the CAP include involvement on numerous committees, serving as an inspector in the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program and mentoring medical students and pathology residents.”

The Power of Two

Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.

"The Power of Two" is now viewable on Link TV across the U.S. www.ThePowerOfTwo.tv.
