John Bostwick, III

John Bostwick, III Educational & Research Foundation

SESPRS announced the implementation of a new educational prize at the 2014 Atlanta Breast Symposium. The award honors Dr. John Bostwick, former Emory University Professor and Chief of Plastic Surgery. Department and Division Chairs in Plastic and General Surgery across the Southeastern region encourage Resident participation.

The prize is awarded to the winner of a Southeastern Regional contest for Residents in Plastic and General Surgery on research topics in breast surgery. It includes a stipend for travel and accommodations, as well as complimentary registration at the Breast Surgery Symposium. 

According to Barry Bishop, M.D., past President of the SESPRS, "This is exactly what John would have wanted, knowing his commitment to Resident education and breast surgery. After John passed, we all felt the need to honor John and the good he had done for so many during his lifetime. The Bostwick Educational Fund arose from these discussions and we felt it would be best to establish a fund dedicated to resident education." 

Luis Vasconez, M.D., past chief of Plastic Surgery at UAB and a close personal friend of John remembers it the same way, "We did not need a formal vote to establish a fund in John's honor. It seemed like something that needed to be done since we all loved John so much. The fact that it has grown so large from SESPRS Member contributions only is a testament to the abiding love and respect for John.
