The Andrew N. Swanson, MD, Spine Awards

The Andrew N. Swanson, MD, Spine Awards

were developed in 2009 to honor the memory of Dr. Swanson, who demonstrated from his residency days through his brief professional career, a commitment to provide compassionate medical care and services to all he encountered. He participated in humanitarian work on a regular basis, traveling two times a year since graduating from HSS to give pro-bono surgical care to patients in Ghana, Africa. Nominations will be solicited from HSS Staff and Alumni recognizing an HSS alumni who excelled in spine education, research, practice or humanitarian efforts with one or more of the following attributes: leadership, academia, clinical innovation, humanitarian/societal involvement, and/or research. Recipients will be acknowledged at the Annual Alumni Meeting.
