Pathology Award

MU College of Veterinary Medicine alumna Amanda Fales-Williams, DVM ’95, PhD, has received the 2013 American College of Veterinary Pathologists Presidential Award. Fales-Williams was honored Nov. 19 at the ACVP annual meeting in Montreal.

Presidential awards honor valuable service to the ACVP that exceeds normal expectations. Fales-Williams is the chair of the ACVP’s Maintenance of Certification Development Committee.

Fales-Williams received her bachelor’s degree in zoology with a minor in English at the University of Kentucky. After completing her DVM at the University of Missouri, she went to Iowa State University to complete her PhD and residency in veterinary anatomic pathology. Board-certified in anatomic pathology by the ACVP, she currently is an associate professor of veterinary pathology at the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Her husband, Bill Williams, DVM, is also an alumnus of the CVM Class of 1995, and her father, William Fales, is a professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology.

The ACVP is an organization of board-certified scientists that has been setting the standard for veterinary pathology since 1949. Its mission is to foster excellence in veterinary pathology to protect and improve animal, human and environmental health to benefit society.
