Connecticut Children's Medical Center Physician Awarded Prestigious National Award

Hartford, Connecticut (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

J. Michael Connors, MD, Associate Director of the Division of Pain and Palliative Medicine at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, has been awarded the Society for Pediatric Sedation’s 2013 Joseph P. Cravero, MD Leadership Award. Established in 2010, the award is presented annually to a member of the Society for Pediatric Sedation (SPS) who, with a collaborative and engaging spirit, furthers the field of pediatric sedation through his or her efforts in research, education, and health policy.

“I can think of no one more deserving of this award than the Society's immediate past president, Dr. J. Michael Connors. His ability to translate his own cutting edge pediatric sedation clinical and business practices to other clinicians interested in providing great care is phenomenal,” said Lia Lowrie, MD, President of the Society for Pediatric Sedation. “He simply embodies Dr. Cravero's vision of defining and promoting quality sedation care for children. Dr. Connors tenure as president of the Society will be remembered as the time when the quality of the care we provide was brought to the forefront of this rapidly evolving field.”

Dr. Connors joined Connecticut Children’s in July 2012. He came from East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, where he was President of Pediatric Analgesia and Sedation Specialists, PLLC. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from University of Notre Dame and his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. Dr. Connors completed fellowships in emergency medicine at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio and Jacobi Medical Center in Bronx, New York. Board certified in pediatrics and pediatric emergency medicine, he is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

“We are all very proud of Dr. Connors and congratulate him on this prominent recognition," said Juan C. Salazar, MD, MPH, Connecticut Children’s Interim Physician-in-Chief. "His expertise in pediatric sedation and pain and palliative medicine helps all of us at Connecticut Children's treat children with advanced medical care."
