"The American Society of Hematology (ASH) will honor Cage S. Johnson, MD, of the University of Southern California, and José A. López, MD, of the University of Washington, with the ASH Award for Leadership in Promoting Diversity for their extraordinary commitment to diversity and inclusion in hematology. This year’s recipients have been instrumental to the establishment of the diversity programs of ASH.

It is a great honor to receive this award from ASH, because increasing the participation of all groups at all levels of society has always been a goal of mine,” said Dr. López. “I am proud that I was able to help establish ASH’s minority programs and help the Society increase the participation of underrepresented minorities training in hematology-related fields.”
