RICHMOND, Va., April 5 Virginia Lawyers Media, publishers of Virginia Lawyers Weekly and the Virginia Medical Law Report, has announced that Tonya Mallory, President and CEO of Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. (HDL, Inc.), has been selected as one of 2010's "Influential Women of Virginia."
This awards program, started last year, recognizes the outstanding efforts of women in the Commonwealth in all fields, including law, business, health care, education and the arts. The honors are given to individuals who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large.
Mallory's role as President and CEO at HDL, Inc., located in the Virginia Biotechnology Research Park, is to offer a new preventative model to the medical community, one that provides physicians with more advanced tools and scientific evidence to predict angiographic disease and coronary heart disease events.
Mallory, joined by a team of healthcare leaders from around the country, is moving the medical community beyond total cholesterol and outdated measurement techniques, and instead provides physicians with comprehensive and accurate information that surpasses the reach of conventional HDL and LDL analysis. By working with HDL, Inc., physicians can do more than diagnose disease; they can focus on all of the cholesterol components and residual risk factors or biomarkers, and their impact on overall heath.
Previous to launching HDL, Inc.'s advanced laboratory, Mallory led initiatives at Berkeley HeartLab, Inc. and Wako Diagnostics, an IVD company providing products to the laboratory market. She has been instrumental in positioning HDL, Inc. as a key support network for physicians and patients to better understand and manage disease through prevention, education, lifestyle changes, coordination of healthcare services and adherence to prescribed plans of care (POCs) through internet-based tools.
The "Influential Women of Virginia" honorees will be celebrated at a gala luncheon on May 20 at the Omni Richmond Hotel in downtown Richmond.
