The Pediatric Assembly of the Canadian Thoracic Society is pleased to announce the Victor Chernick Award, established in 2009 in honour of Dr Victor Chernick. The first recipient of the Victor Chernick Award is Victor Chernick himself, a pioneer in the study of pulmonary disease in children.
Dr Chernick’s lifetime contributions to child health include being the editor of the first textbook in North America devoted to diseases of the chest in children – Disorders of the Respiratory Tract in Children, the editor of Pediatric Pulmonology and establishment of the Pediatric Assembly of the Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS). Dr Chernick established an important research and teaching base for pediatric respirology in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and has more than 150 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
On an annual basis, the Victor Chernick Award will recognize an individual for lifetime achievement in the field of pediatric respirology.
Congratulations to Dr Chernick!
