Respiratory health endowment to coordinate public education about asthma

(Orlando, Florida, October 26, 2003) -- The CHEST Foundation announced today that Richard J. Martin, MD, FCCP, of National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver, is the first recipient of the newly endowed Distinguished Scholar in Respiratory Health Award. Presented by the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP); The CHEST Foundation, the ACCP's philanthropic arm; and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the endowment is aimed at improving respiratory health for millions of children and adults. The official announcement and recognition will take place at the Convocation Ceremony, during CHEST 2003, the annual international assembly of the ACCP, taking place October 25-30 in Orlando, Florida.

As the GSK Scholar, Dr. Martin will create and manage an original educational project that will help disseminate new knowledge about respiratory health and advance the creation of best practices in patient care. Dr. Martin will receive an annual stipend over a three-year period and then serve in a mentorship role on a Distinguished Scholar Advisory Council.

"The Distinguished Scholar program allows specialists like Dr. Martin to take a different approach to research and pursue groundbreaking work in respiratory health," said Diane E. Stover, MD, FCCP, President of The CHEST Foundation. "Their efforts will have a significant impact on future generations."

In accordance with the award guidelines, the GSK Scholar is required to address one of the major respiratory disorders encompassed by ACCP members' clinical specialties, such as asthma and COPD. Dr. Martin will investigate how to implement the asthma guidelines established by the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) into the primary care practice and how to educate the public about the guidelines. Working with ACCP and other medical organizations, Dr. Martin will develop a program that takes a coordinated approach to asthma education, targeted to both physicians and other caregive
