Congratulations to Professor Bill Hammer:: Fellow of the Association of Surgical Technologists

Professor Bill Hammer (Health Careers) was recently named a Fellow of the Association of Surgical Technologists (FAST).

This designation recognizes surgical technology professionals who uphold the highest professional, ethical and moral standards and traditions and who are engaged in activities which promote the advancement of the profession and quality surgical patient care. Selection is based in part on an application and letters of recommendation from the Association of Surgical Technologists national board of directors or previous FAST recipients.

“This award means so much. Less than 100 people have ever received this award, and it recognizes the different contributions people have made the profession,” Hammer said. “To be given this honor really makes a person feel that their efforts toward making the profession better have made a difference.”

He was recognized at the opening ceremony of the Association of Surgical Technologists Annual National Conference in Denver, Colorado in May.

Congratulations!
