BTER Foundation announces winners of the William S. Baer Award
Date:2/15/2011

usiasm of a wonderful woman, Pam Mitchell. I would say that Pam and I have a symbiotic relationship in that she has enhanced my education, along with the education of many physicians and students . . . . Every time I see her walking, I'm reminded of the importance of listening to patients."

Pam Mitchell is also a Baer Award winner. She began her "career" in biotherapy after maggot therapy was used to save her feet from amputation. She is a founding Board Member and patient advocate for the BTER Foundation. Pam has contributed significantly to the field of biotherapy through her work as an educator and motivational speaker, and through her tireless work supporting patients in search of information and care.

Dr. Mumcuoglu entered the field of biotherapy during the early 1990's, when he started a colony of blow flies in Israel and convinced local doctors to allow him to treat their patients' wounds with his maggots. He gathered and published important data concerning the efficacy and safety of maggot therapy. Dr. Mumcuoglu has also been a key figure in discovering the mechanisms by which medicinal maggots exert their therapeutic effects. He has treated over 600 patients with MDT and hirudotherapy, and has published over 20 peer reviewed articles on this topic. Dr. Mumcuoglu was President of the International Society of Biotherapy from 1998 through 2010.

Dr. Tippett has been a key proponent and educator in American biotherapy. One of Dr. Tippett's most important contributions has been the integration of biotherapy into mainstream medicine. She helped to develop policies and protocols for maggot therapy, which are now used by many centers around the country. Most of her wound care courses include sessions on biotherapy.

The awardees each received honorific status in the BTER Foundation, and a commemorative plaque. Monarch Labs, based in Irvine, California, donated $1,000 to support the projects of one of the recipients. Pam Mitchell
