P. Craig Hobar, MD to receive special recognition for medical relief work

New York, NY (Vocus) April 23, 2010 -- When an earthquake devastated Port Au Prince, Haiti in January, people and organizations from around the globe responded with aid. P. Craig Hobar, MD was among the first on the ground. In recognition of his efforts, Dr. Hobar will receive the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) Community Service Award at the ASAPS Annual Meeting.

Dr. Hobar is well known in the Dallas plastic surgery community. In 1991 he founded the Life Enhancement Association for People (LEAP) Foundation to help those in poor and developing countries get the reconstructive surgery critically needed by individuals, particularly children, in order to live normal lives. In January, Dr. Hobar and his LEAP team were in Port Au Prince, Haiti from day four through day six of the disaster, where they performed necessary operations under grueling circumstances. LEAP continues its missions to Haiti with regular reports from a wide range of volunteers and other members of the ASAPS plastic surgery family.

The ASAPS Community Service Award was created to recognize members of the plastic surgery community who have made outstanding contributions to those in unfortunate situations. “Making a difference can look like many things. Sometimes it is the simple things: like a smile, kind word or a listening ear. Other times, making a difference calls for a journey around the world,” said ASAPS President Renato Saltz, MD. “LEAP has helped enhance and change the lives of over 2,500 people from six continents.”

“I am honored to accept this award for my involvement and pleased that this cause – and the LEAP Foundation – are being acknowledged by the medical community,” added Dr. Hobar.

The Aesthetic Meeting 2010, “A Capital Experience with a Global Perspective”, will take place April 23-27, 2010 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, DC.
