Date:10/23/2009

rics and bioethics. I'm proud to be chosen as the award's first recipient."

Dr. Lantos has published more than 150 peer-reviewed articles, as well as books on medical ethics and neonatal care, including "Neonatal Bioethics; The Last Physician: Walker Percy and the Moral Life of Medicine; Do We Still Need Doctors?"; and "The Lazarus Case: Life and Death Issues in Neonatal Intensive Care", which explores the moral dilemma experienced in the NICU. His recent research focuses on the medical and social causes of rising preterm birth.

Dr. Lantos is visiting professor in pediatrics at the University of Chicago and past president of the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities and American Society of Law, Medicine and Ethics. He was the first named to the John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics. Francis was a philanthropist who developed life-sustaining respiratory technology.

Also, the March of Dimes presented Sarah Clark Miller, Ph.D., assistant professor of Philosophy at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, the March of Dimes first-ever Young Scholar Award in Perinatal Bioethics for her paper entitled: "Visual Intimacies: Ultrasound, Reproductive Autonomy, and the Pregnancy Relationship."

"As a woman who went into preterm labor at 25 weeks and who now has avery healthy son, it is especially meaningful to receive an award sponsored by the March of Dimes, an organization that provided excellent information throughout my pregnancy," said Dr. Miller, whose work focuses on ethics, the history of moral philosophy, bioethics, feminist theory, and social and political philosophy.

Both awards are expected to be presented annually. Distinguished Lectureship recipients will receive a $3,000 prize, while the Young Scholars will receive $1,000.
