Karna, LLC presents On Target Award to employee Chris Ghattas


ATLANTA | Karna, LLC awarded the On Target Award, on Thursday, August 24, 2017, to Chris Ghattas, a laboratory quality specialist working on a contract at the Centers for Disease Control.

The award was presented to Ghattas during an awards ceremony held at the Centers for Disease Control’s Global Communications Center on Thursday. Employees gathered to celebrate the past year’s successes and to present the On Target Award.

Ghattas was chosen from three finalists nominated by their fellow co-workers. The three finalists were Dana Brown, from the World Trade Center Health Program, Chris Ghattas, from the NCIRD Lab Quality Management Support Team, and Leslyn Wong, from the CDC’s Global Health and Communications team.

Last year’s On Target Award winner, Aisha Rios, was on hand to present this year’s award to Ghattas during the afternoon ceremony.

“In his every day approach to work, by putting customers first, doing the right thing, and transparency, Chris is consistently praised by his clients and peers as mission focused, trustworthy, reliable, and accountable,” reads the co-worker’s nomination of Ghattas.

“I couldn’t be more proud of Chris. He embodies Karna’s values and truly makes a positive impact on public health,” Karna CEO and founder Ambica Yadav said in response to Ghattas’ win.

Karna's On Target Award is presented annually, in association with the date the company was founded, to recognize one outstanding staff member who embodies Karna's standards for professionalism, excellence and improvements to public health.
