In addition to national recognition for her contributions to quality programs in the clinical lab and beyond, Cardinal Health will provide a $25,000 educational grant to the institution of higher learning of Dawson's choice. Dawson's grant will go to Texas State University to support students pursuing careers in clinical laboratory science. "As a passionate advocate of the laboratory and its role in providing quality care and the highest level of patient safety, I'm humbled and honored to be recognized with this prestigious laboratory award," said Dawson. "I hope this spreads awareness of the impactful work being done by medical laboratory professionals and inspires others to pursue a career in this rewarding field." Dawson is currently the senior director of Quality for Human Longevity, Inc. in San Diego and affiliate faculty at Regis University in Denver.

In addition, Dawson is heavily involved in calculating the Cost of Poor Quality, which allows laboratories to demonstrate the financial benefits of quality programs. She frequently publishes articles, presents posters and aims to spread awareness and further knowledge about lab quality.
