Lisa is currently within the R&D Functional Performance group at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics as a Systems Engineer in Rochester.
Lisa Benison was the first the recipient of the Medtech Association’s first Engineering World Health (EWH) Summer Institute scholarship. EWH is a non-profit organization, founded in 2001, that collaborates with students to improve healthcare in developing countries. EWH works to harness the resources of collegiate engineering programs through a network of university-based chapters nationally and throughout New York State. Benison and other EWH students are now in Tanzania to use or repair medical products in the field, at a hospital or at a clinic. The scholarship is a matching grant of $3,750 from MedTech members, which helped to cover the cost of travel and lodging.
