Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Ignacio Tapia, MD, received the inaugural Carole L. Marcus Outstanding Achievement Award from the American Thoracic Society (ATS), named in honor of his CHOP colleague who was a leader in pediatric sleep medicine research.
“It was a great honor to receive this award named after my mentor,” Dr. Tapia said. “I am working hard every day to live up to the expectations.”
Dr. Marcus continues to find practicing sleep medicine extremely gratifying because she often sees how diagnosing sleep problems and then recommending appropriate therapies can make a huge difference in patients’ and families’ lives.
