Prahlow receives STAR award

The Medical Foundation’s Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Joseph Prahlow, was recently presented with the STAR Award at the 2014 National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) annual meeting which was held in September in Portland, Oregon.

The National Association of Medical Examiners is a professional organization for medical examiners, physicians who investigate sudden, violent and suspicious deaths and perform autopsies, as well as those who do not perform autopsies. The organization and its members support each other through research and educational opportunities along with other leadership and professional opportunities. 

 “I was surprised and honored to receive the award.  I enjoy serving the Forensic Pathology community through the NAME organization,” said Prahlow.
