Another excited crowd of faculty and staff swarmed the breakfast buffet and, after leaving only crumbs, packed into the auditorium for the annual Faculty and Staff Awards. The Oscar-themed décor lent an air of importance to the occasion, and seemed to amp up the energy from the standing-room only crowd.
After the Awards Committee co-chairs Courtney Moreno, MD, and Willie Arnold, MBA, welcomed everyone and Emory Radiology Chair Dr. Carolyn Meltzer delivered her opening remarks, Dr. Christopher Ho and Dr. Ryan Peterson were recognized for being voted Teachers of the Year in June by the graduating Class of 2018 diagnostic radiology residents.
Dr. James Galt then acknowledged the 2018 recipient of the Tracy Lynn Faber Memorial Award, founded and funded by Emory to encourage advancement of women in medical imaging sciences. Now administered by the Computer and Instrumentation Council of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, the award was presented at the SNMMI annual meeting to Greta Mok, PhD, of the University of Macau, China.
Harold Glenn, Jr., then noted the Caught in the Act service awards given over the year to Tamara Dillard, Brittany Young, Claudia Frederique, Nikia Page, Tracey Bourne, Lorrain Petgrave, Pamela Stanley, Slavvy Petrov, Debra Weber, Bobbie Burrow, Elizabeth Ryan, and the entire IR Scheduling team in room AG30.
The full roster of faculty and staff awards then were presented by the co-chairs. The following are the nominees and winners (in bold).
