the workers afterwards, are something we should all aspire to. We congratulate him and offer this award in recognition of his extraordinary work."

ATS, a medical association of more than 15,000 members dedicated to preventing and fighting respiratory disease around the globe, gives its Public Service Award each year to individuals who have made contributions in the public health arena related to this mission.

"I am so honored to be presented with this award, which highlights the importance of not just my work, but of the field of pulmonary medicine itself, in terms of its impact on public health," said Dr. Prezant. "The selfless actions of these first responders, rescue and recovery workers helped save countless lives. They deserve anything we can do to help them monitor and regain their health. Hopefully, through the lessons we have learned, similar health consequences can be prevented at future disasters."

This year, in no small part because of the work of Dr. Prezant and his colleagues, President Obama signed legislation to expand and extend funding so that anyone suffering from these exposures first responders, construction workers, volunteers and community residents is eligible to receive necessary healthcare.

Dr. Prezant, who is also the chief medical officer of the FDNY, will accept the award at the ATS's International Conference in Denver on May 15, 2011.
