Health Sciences Dean Receives ASAHP Legacy of Excellence Award
The Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions (ASAHP) has honored Duquesne University Rangos School of Health Sciences Dean Dr. Greg Frazer with its prestigious Legacy of Excellence Award.
The award, which is so significant that it is rarely designated, recognizes an individual whose career is exemplary in terms of contributions to ASAHP. It was last awarded in 2011. The association's board of directors selects the honoree.
"Dean Frazer has played a very significant role in helping our association and the field of allied health make major strides at the local, regional and national level," said Dr. Richard Oliver, president of ASAHP. "He has and will continue to be viewed as a national leader who has left a lasting mark on the allied health professions. This award is in recognition of the important legacy he has created."
Frazer received the award on Oct. 22 during the 2014 ASAHP Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
Frazer has served as president, treasurer and as a member of the ASAHP Board of Directors, during which time the association was recognized by the Institute of Medicine as a major contributor to health professions education. He was named an ASAHP Fellow in 2007 and previously received the organization's Distinguished Service Award.
His work has been published in the Journal of the National Association of EMS Physicians, The Health Educator and Issues in Mental Health Nursing. Frazer recently served on the NCAA's Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports, and he also was one of only eight individuals selected to participate in the inaugural Coalition for Allied Health Leadership Program in Washington, D.C. Frazer resides in Franklin Park, Pa.
