ASTRO announces 2009 Fellows
Date:7/29/2009

The American Society for Radiation Oncology is pleased to announce its 2009 class of ASTRO Fellows. These 12 distinguished members will receive their awards at a special ceremony during the 51th Annual Meeting being held November 1-5, 2009, at McCormick Place West in Chicago.

"It is an honor to be able to recognize these outstanding individuals who have devoted their careers to improving the specialty of radiation oncology and the care that cancer patients receive and who also have devoted their free time to serving the Society in leadership roles," Patricia Eifel, M.D., FASTRO, ASTRO chairman and a professor of radiation oncology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, said. "Everyone in this year's Fellows class is very deserving of this distinction."

Members of ASTRO are eligible to become a Fellow if they have been part of the Society for at least 20 years, have served in a leadership role for the organization and have made a significant contribution to the field of radiation oncology. The primary pathways to becoming a Fellow are excellence in research, patient care, education and leadership/service. The Society values contributions to all four areas; however, each nominee needed to have a truly outstanding contribution to at least one of the pathways to be named a Fellow.

The nominations were reviewed by the nine-member Fellows Selection Committee who made recommendations to the ASTRO Board of Directors to make the final decision.

Ross Abrams, M.D., Rush University, Chicago

Beatriz E. Amendola, M.D., Innovative Cancer Institute, South Miami, Fla.
