A wonderful surprise after a difficult year for Harvey
A WFUMB Past President and much respected, essential member of our Committees – Harvey has been sorely missed over the last eight months whilst he continues to battle with his condition.
A wonderful surprise and honor for Harvey occurred recently, when the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Board of Governors selected Harvey to receive the 2020 Peter H. Arger Excellence in Medical Student Education Award. The award was “for outstanding commitment and contributions to the development of ultrasound in medical education.” The award would have been presented at the 2020 Annual AIUM Meeting next week in NYC. Due to his health status and inability to accept the award at the meeting (which has now been canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis), Dr. Arger came to the Abramson TCC to present the award to Harvey. A photo of Dr. Arger’s visit and presentation is above. A very touching tribute booklet was also presented which included congratulatory letters from AIUM leadership past and present as well as other leaders from the ultrasound world.
Congratulations to Harvey for this wonderful and well deserved accolade.
The WFUMB Family wish Harvey all the very best, sending our love and strength to continue his battle.
