Dr. North Wins Glancy Award from SESPR


(L to R: Dr. Brian Rinker & Dr. William North)

Dr. William D. North was honored at the 59th Annual Black Tie Dinner of the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons on June 14, 2016, as the latest recipient of the Glancy Award. This award is given annually to the resident judged to have the best paper presented in the resident’s competition.

“It’s an achievement simply to be invited to make a presentation, Dr. North said. “I think the increase in the number of presentations this year was indicative of the quality of the research being conducted by residents [in SESPRS member institutions that encompass 11 Southeastern States and Puerto Rico.”

Dr. North was lead author of a study entitled “Dermal Autograft using Donor Breast as Alternative to Acellular Dermal Matrices in Tissue Expander Breast Reconstruction: A Comparative Review.” Author credit also went to UK College of Medicine students Christopher Kubajak and Brad St. Martin as well as Dr. Brian Rinker, Director of the UK Plastic Surgery Residency Program.

“Chris and Brad collected the data and compiled statistics in the patient record review,” Dr. North said. “I am also indebted to my fellow colleagues and attendings for helping sharpen the presentation to fit within the time limits and advise me on questions that the committee might ask. I doubt I’d be celebrating without their feedback and support.”

The residency competition and Glancy Award were established by General Alfred Robinson Glancy, a former vice president of General Motors, as a gesture of gratitude for medical services that SESPRS member Billy Huger, MD, of Atlanta provided to him in the early 1970s.

Each year, the winning physician’s name is etched into the Glancy Cup and is displayed at the physician’s resident institution for the year.
