Drs. George Gregory and Ronald Miller at the UCSF Anesthesia and Perioperative 50th Anniversary Gala in 2008

We’re pleased to announce that Dr. George Gregory has received the inaugural UCSF Emeriti and Retired Faculty Award of Excellence from the UCSF Emeriti Faculty Association. Dr. Gregory’s many contributions to anesthesia, neonatology, pediatrics and medicine are well-known, including authoring and editing the leading textbook on pediatric anesthesia, serving as a mentor and teacher to over 40 years-worth of anesthesia and other medical trainees, taking on multiple leadership roles within the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care at UCSF, and providing his expertise to providers across the world to promote global health equity and safe medical care for all, especially children and infants. Beyond all of these impressive accomplishments, Dr. Gregory’s pioneering work to dramatically improve the care and life expectancy of neonates with hyaline membrane disease, using positive continuous airway pressure or CPAP, has perhaps been his most impactful. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Gregory for this honor, and thanking him for his contributions to medicine!
