Honors for HST MD alum Rebecca Aslakson

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

 

HST MD alum Rebecca (ne Reichert) Aslakson was named the 2014 Presidential Scholar for the 52,000 member American Society of Anesthesiologists. This highly prestigious award is given once a year to the top anesthesia clinician researcher in the country who is within 10 years of having finished training. I am also the first female to ever receive the award in its 12 year history.
 
Dr. Aslakson is also named to receive the 2015 Early Career Investigator Award from the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM). The premier palliative medicine professional society in the US, AAHPM gives this award once a year to the top palliative medicine clinician researcher in the country who is still in an early stage of their career (i.e. - no previous or current RO1 funding).
 

Congratulations Rebecca !
