ASTRO has selected Mary K. Gospodarowicz, MD, FASTRO, Leonard L. Gunderson, MD, MS, FASTRO, and Nancy J. Tarbell, MD, FASTRO, to receive the Society’s highest honor—the ASTRO Gold Medal. The 2014 awardees received the ASTRO Gold Medal during the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, September 16, 2014, at ASTRO’s 56th Annual Meeting, September 14-17, 2014, at Moscone Center in San Francisco.

ASTRO’s Gold Medal, first awarded in 1977, is bestowed annually on esteemed ASTRO members who have made exceptional contributions to the field of radiation oncology, including work in research, clinical care, teaching and service. Nominees may be from any of the scientific disciplines represented in ASTRO’s membership, including radiation oncology, biology and physics. Including the three 2014 awardees, only 75 of ASTRO’s more than 10,000 members have received the Gold Medal.

“Congratulations to my distinguished colleagues, Drs. Gospodarowicz, Gunderson and Tarbell for being recognized with the ASTRO Gold Medal,” said ASTRO Chair Colleen A.F. Lawton, MD, FASTRO. “They have each greatly impacted the field of radiation oncology through their research, clinical work and passion for providing high-quality care. Their contributions to our specialty will continue to improve the lives of cancer patients worldwide.”
