Article by Myron Yaster MD (from the October 26, 2022 PAAD)
Many of you know Dr. Faye Evans of the Boston Children’s Hospital…and if you don’t, well, I’d urge you to introduce yourself to her at the next SPA meeting! You won’t regret it! Dr. Evans recently completed her 4 year term on the Board of Directors at the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia and has been a leader in SPA’s Global committee which advocates for increased availability, improved quality and enhanced safety of anesthesia for children worldwide with a specific focus on low- and middle-income countries. The work of this Committee includes developing a pediatric anesthesia lecture series, supporting pediatric anesthesia fellowship training in Kenya and Thailand, sponsoring short courses in pediatric anesthesia for low-resource settings, linking members with volunteer organizations, and partnering with similar organizations to advance these causes.
While sitting at the Rovenstine lecture at the ASA’s annual meeting on Monday, I was simply blown away when they announced that Faye was the recipient of the Nicholas M. Greene award, the highest honor in our profession for global humanitarian outreach. What a wonderful honor that she so richly deserves! I would urge all of you to congratulate her when you see her and perhaps follow my example of donating to Lifebox in her honor. As I hope you know, Lifebox’s mission is to provide pulse oximeters and improve the safety and quality of anesthesia and surgery throughout the world. Myron Yaster MD
