The American Liver Foundation has named Jean Emond, MD, as Physician of the Year. He will be honored at the foundation’s 13th annual Honors Gala Saluting Champions of Excellence September 26, 2013, at Gotham Hall in New York City.
Jean Emond, MD
Dr. Emond is Vice Chair and Chief of Liver Transplantation at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and Executive Director of the Transplant Initiative. Regarded as one of the world’s foremost experts in liver disease and transplantation, Dr. Emond was a key member of Dr. Christoph Broelsch’s liver transplant team at the University of Chicago, which performed the first partial liver transplants in North America in 1985, the first split liver transplants in 1988, and the first living donor transplants in 1989. Under his direction, the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia has established a track record of distinguished clinical research and superb outcomes for children and adults.
The American Liver Foundation facilitates, advocates and promotes education, support and research for the prevention, treatment, and cure of liver disease. Its annual Honors Galas have raised over $4.2 million for research and education since their inception.
