IWHL to Present Marion Spencer Fay Award
The Drexel University College of Medicine’s Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership (IWHL), will present the 51st Marion Spencer Fay Award to Dr. Mary-Claire King at a ceremony at Philadelphia’s Pyramid Club on December 3 at 5:30 p.m. The announcement was made by Dr. Mary Anne Delaney, chair of the award committee, and Lynn Yeakel, IWHL director.
King is a professor of medicine and genome sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. She was selected to receive the award because of her focus on identifying genes affecting the development of breast cancer, and her work on behalf of victims of human rights crimes.
