Clement Yan, a senior in the Respiratory Care Program in the College of Health Professions at SUNY Upstate Medical University, has been named recipient of the Jimmy Young Memorial Education Recognition Award of the American Respiratory Care Foundation (ARCF).

Yan was selected for his original paper that explored the relationship between brain function and respiratory function following head injury and for his academic achievement. The award carries a $1,000 cash award plus all expenses to the AARC International Respiratory Congress to be held Dec. 8 to 11 in Las Vegas.
