nts and trainees. The data have also, more importantly, improved patient outcomes. Dr. George has been personally involved in the care of 92 percent of patients in the registry since 1995, making it one of the most well conducted and powerful registries to date.

Dr. George is also well known for his leadership in writing and publishing a landmark paper in Blood, ASH's peer-reviewed Journal, in 1996 designed to serve as a guideline to assist clinicians in the management of ITP. In addition to serving as the principal writer of the guideline the first evidence-based ASH Clinical Practice Guideline for ASH members and the hematology community at-large Dr. George chaired the panel that oversaw its compilation. Since it was first published, ASH's ITP Clinical Practice Guideline remains one of the most referenced manuscripts on the management of ITP, and has been updated several times to reflect numerous advances in the management of the blood disorder that have taken place in recent years.

The innovation and leadership Dr. George demonstrated in developing ASH's first Clinical Practice Guideline is one of his many contributions to the Society over more than 25 years. Dr. George, who served as ASH President in 2005, has also helped shape one of ASH's most important career development programs, the ASH Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI). This unique year-long education and mentoring program, now in its 10th year, is designed for hematology fellows and junior faculty interested in pursuing careers in patient-oriented clinical research. Dr. George is also credited with helping to develop the ASH Mentor Award and the ASH-Amos Medical Faculty Development Program, an initiative designed to increase the number of underrepresented scholars in hematology. He also edited ASH's first Self-Assessment Program in 2002 and has served as a member or chair of several Society committees and educational programs.
