Date:11/12/2007

HONOLULU, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dileep G. Bal, M.D., received the 2007 AMA Foundation Award for Health Education. Presented by the AMA Foundation, the award recognizes physicians who have led, developed or implemented professional and public health education activities. The award was presented to Dr. Bal, a district health officer for the island of Kauai, Saturday during the opening session of the AMA's semi-annual policy-making meeting.

"We are pleased to present Dr. Bal with this award. His dedication to public health, medical and social issues is admirable and a real asset to the medical community," said AMA President Ron Davis, M.D.

Dr. Bal has long been involved in calling attention to the dangers of smoking and making strides to curb its use among Americans. He played an instrumental role in establishing one of the largest tobacco use prevention and cessation programs, which has been widely acclaimed for its innovation and effectiveness. For more than two decades, Dr. Bal served as chief of the Cancer Control Branch within the California Department of Health Services and was responsible for implementing California's tobacco control efforts beginning in 1988.

During his time in California, Dr. Bal was also a clinical professor at the University of California at Davis School of Medicine, where he was active in teaching and research programs. He has also served as principal investigator on major cancer prevention and control projects for the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Bal is a frequent speaker both nationally and internationally on public health, medical and social issues, and was recently the commencement speaker at Brown University School of Medicine.

As the philanthropic arm of the American Medical Association, the AMA Foundation is committed to supporting programs in a broad range of health-related areas. For more information, please visit http://www.amafoundation.org.
