2013 Past President’s Award
Dr. Miller is a professor in the pathology department at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he serves as director of clinical chemistry and director of pathology information systems. He led the AACC through another successful year in 2012. A primary achievement was the development of a new strategic plan for the next three years designed to maintain continuity while adapting strategies and tactics each year. The membership approved the first thorough update of the bylaws since 1948. The association continued to expand its service to the profession with the patient-oriented website, Lab Tests Online, increasing its reach to 17 countries in 14 languages with the addition of sites in Korea and Romania. Users downloaded the Lab Tests Online U.S. mobile app at a rate of 10 times a day as the site provided information to more than 2 million visitors a month. The journal Clinical Chemistry moved into the electronic age with new iPhone and iPad apps; users downloaded 425,000 copies of the journal’s 112 podcasts. The journal also expanded the Clinical Chemistry Trainee Council to offer Spanish and Chinese versions. The AACC added two new divisions: the Biomarkers of Cardiovascular Disease Division and the Personalized Medicine Division. And the association co-hosted an international conference on point-of-care testing in addition to collaborating with Latin American laboratory associations to hold three workshops on quality control.
