Anthony S. Fauci, MD, FIDSA, has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Nation’s highest civilian award.  At a White House ceremony on June 19, 2008, President George W. Bush commended Dr. Fauci ”for his determined and aggressive efforts to help others live longer and healthier lives.”  Dr. Fauci has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.

Sherwood L. Gorbach, MD, FIDSA, and John G. Bartlett, MD, FIDSA, will both have received the Anaerobe 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award on June 24-27 in Long Beach, California at the Renaissance Hotel.  They are being honored for their seminal paper on Clostridium difficile. This year marks the 30th anniversary of their paper, which first identified C. difficile. as the cause of antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis (PMC).  Dr. Gorbach is currently the editor-in-chief of Clinical Infectious Diseases.   Dr. Bartlett is the chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is a past president of IDSA.
