Kenneth Lamm, M.D., Presented with Certificate of Expertise
from the College of American Pathologists
Albemarle Hospital, Elizabeth City
Kenneth Lamm, M.D., medical director and pathologist for Albemarle Hospital, has earned a Certificate of Special Expertise in Breast Predictive Factor Testing from the College of American Pathologists. This specialized certification program trains physicians to accurately evaluate breast tissue specimens and interpret test results to both clinicians and patients collaboratively.
With this expertise, physicians are better equipped to find and determine cancerous breast tissue more accurately. This certification ensures that women have the best chance for an accurate and early diagnosis. Dr. Lamm was one of 33 pathologists who received distinction this year after completing a curriculum that followed the American Society of Clinical Oncology guideline recommendations.
“Dr. Lamm’s commitment to women’s health means a great deal for Albemarle Hospital and the women we serve,” said Sharon Tanner, President of Albemarle Health. “When physicians are highly-trained in the latest in medicine, our community stays healthier.”
Since 1998, Dr. Lamm has overseen all anatomic pathology services at Albemarle Hospital. He became medical director for the hospital in 2006. Dr. Lamm received his doctorate degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C., and performed his residency at the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill, N.C.
