MCLEAN, Va., July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday June 18th, 2009, the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) recognized Dr. Dan Lebovitz by presenting him with the 2009 Excellence in Leadership Award. The AOPO award was supported by the Nathan Sallop Insurance Agency. The national award is presented to an individual who demonstrates leadership through outstanding achievements in the organ procurement field.

He attends weekly case reviews and provides leadership by preparing educational lectures for the procurement staff.

Dr. Lebovitz has made significant contributions to LifeBanc. His work on the Strategic Planning Committee resulted in the formation of a community based board. Dr. Lebovitz spearheaded the CEO Search Committee and aided LifeBanc in the creation of their DCD donor program. He assisted LifeBanc and the local transplant centers during their conversions to electronic organ allocations and in the same year, was elected Medical Advisor for AOPO. In 2008, Dr. Lebovitz continued to serve as a leader in the field by performing the first face transplant in the United States.

Dr. Lebovitz earned his undergraduate degree at Washington University in St. Louis. He graduated from the Duke University School of Medicine in 1986.
