We are pleased to announce that Emily Kerttu, a Wayne State University Information and Library Science student, has won the 2023-2024 Margaret Danowski Student Scholarship Award!
Emily has an extensive background in the healthcare field, including a degree in biology, and has ambitions to work in a hospital or medical school setting once she finishes library school. She has specific interests in medical technology and hopes to see the intersection of tech and medicine as the way forward in medical librarianship. She speaks to this in her application, "A specialization as a medical librarian would allow me to improve the quality of care by helping providers and other health professionals stay on top of the newest technology and medical developments in their specialties."
Please join me in congratulating Emily on winning this award, and we hope to see her at the 2024 Summer Meeting!
