Leaders in Psychosomatic Medicine: Dr. Andrea DiMartini, MD

Andrea DiMartini, MD

Did you wonder where I got most of the data in the post on organ transplant? Dr. Andrea DiMartini’s work in liver transplantation is nothing short of phenomenal. She was one of the 2008 winners of the APM Visiting Professorship Award; she was sponsored by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She’ll be delivering the Research Award Lecture at the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine 2011 Annual Meeting in Phoenix in November. This is an event you won’t want to miss. See the announcement in the link to APM on this blog site on how to register. Do it soon, and consider becoming a member.
