ReSurge's anesthesia director and world leader in pediatric anesthesia, Dr. George Gregory, will be recognized as this year's recipient of the Nicholas M. Greene Outstanding Humanitarian Contribution Award from the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA).
The award is given to an individual for his or her humanitarian contributions and outstanding volunteer service. It will be presented at the 2013 annual meeting of the ASA in San Francisco beginning this weekend. A long-time volunteer with ReSurge, George leads our anesthesia education and training for international medical partners and has recruited volunteer anesthesiologists for years. He has also led volunteer surgical teams to a variety of sites.
George founded the pediatric anesthesiology program at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in the 1960s and is the author and editor of hundreds of medical articles and books, including Pediatric Anesthesia, the leading textbook on the subject.
We are thrilled that George is being recognized for his incredible contributions to the humanitarian field. Please join us in congratulating him!
