ASA Nominee Receives AMA Award for International Health

Washington D.C. — (February 8, 2011) 

Chicago physician Kathleen Casey, M.D., FACS, today received an AMA Foundation Excellence in Medicine Award. Dr. Casey, a Chicago physician, was nominated for the award by ASA leadership and was the recipient of the Dr. Nathan Davis International Award in Medicine. Dr. Casey and Operation Giving Back were critical in organizing ASA’s support of volunteer anesthesiologists following the Haitian earthquake in January 2010. 

Dr. Casey's desire to continue her service after leaving the U.S. Navy led to the creation of Operation Giving Back. Launched by Dr. Casey, this American College of Surgeons program has placed countless surgeons in virtually every specialty in underserved areas throughout the world, has supported more than 100 nonprofit organizations that serve needy surgical patients and has enhanced the capacity of the U.S. to respond globally to humanitarian crises.

More information about the Excellence in Medicine Awards and Dr. Casey's contributions can be found here.
