Mary Ann Turner, M.D., professor and vice chair of the Department of Radiology, is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists.
The annual award was bestowed for the first time during the 2011 meeting of the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists. In its inaugural year, two awards were given to Turner and to Francis J. Scholz, M.D., of the Lahey Clinic, a teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine.
The award recognizes the two distinguished gastrointestinal radiologists for their outstanding contributions to the field of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology. Scholz and Turner were honored during the 2011 Abdominal Radiology Course Meeting in Carlsbad, Calif., on March 20‐25.
