Denver Health CEO receives AAMC’s David E. Rogers Award Published 12/14/2010

Denver Health CEO Patricia A. Gabow, M.D., was recently presented the David E. Rogers Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).  The award was presented to Dr. Gabow as a “medical school faculty member who has made major contributions to improving the health and health care of the American people.”
“It is a well-established metaphor that safety nets protect the most vulnerable.  But who protects the proverbial safety net?  In the case of Denver Health, it is Patricia A. Gabow, M.D.,” noted the AAMC awards committee.
The award is named after David E. Rogers, the former president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, who was a tireless advocate for the rights of the disenfranchised.
Dr. Gabow received the award at the AAMC national meeting in Washington, D.C. The AAMC represents all 133 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools, approximately 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems, and nearly 90 academic and scientific societies.  Altogether, the AAMC represents 125,000 faculty members, 75,000 medical students, and 106,000 resident physicians.
