Demmler-Harrison honored for devoted work with pediatric society

HOUSTON (May 7, 2009) Dr. Gail Demmler-Harrison has been awarded the Society for Pediatric Research (SPR) 2009 Thomas Hazinski, M.D. Distinguished Service Award.

Demmler-Harrison, director of the Virology Laboratory at Texas Children's Hospital and professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine, received the award at the recent Pediatric Academic Societies' Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD.

The meeting is sponsored by the American Pediatric Society, Society for Pediatric Research, Academic Pediatric Association and American Academy of Pediatrics.

In addition to receiving the Hazinski Award at the PAS meeting, Demmler-Harrison participated in a late-breaking panel, entitled "H1N1 Influenza A: What the Pediatrician Needs to Know," where she discussed management of high volume virology testing in an epidemic situation and effective infection control strategies.

"Gail Demmler is a true leader in pediatric virology," said Jeffrey Starke, M.D., director of Infection Control for Texas Children's Hospital. "Gail has advanced the study of pediatric diseases not only through her dedicated service to the SPR, but also through her ongoing work in the lab, with patients and as an educator. It is a privilege and a delight to work with her."
