Duke Heart Week ending January 22nd 2023

Highlights of the week:

Tong Named Recipient of Inaugural STS/WTS Award

Congratulations to Betty Tong, MD! Tong has been named one of three inaugural recipients of the Extraordinary Women in Cardiothoracic Surgery Award. The news was announced yesterday, Jan. 21, 2023 during the 59th annual meeting of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) being held Jan. 21-23 at the Hilton Bayfront in San Diego.

The award, which is co-sponsored by the STS and Women in Thoracic Surgery, was established to recognize outstanding women surgeons specializing in the cardiothoracic space. The award celebrates those who have achieved excellence and innovation in clinical practice and who demonstrate integrity, leadership, mentorship, creativity, and advocacy on behalf of the specialty, patient population or fellow surgeons and trainees.

“Please join me in congratulating our own Dr. Betty Tong for winning this inaugural award,” said Dr. Edward P. Chen, chief of the division of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Duke. “This is a tremendous honor led by the WTS and STS in recognizing the outstanding achievements of women thoracic surgeons. We are truly blessed and privileged to have Dr. Tong on our faculty at Duke.”

Tong is an associate professor of surgery in the division of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Duke, and a member of the Duke Cancer Institute. Fellow inaugural recipients of the award include Leah Backhus, MD, thoracic surgeon at Stanford Medicine, and Jennifer Ellis, MD, thoracic surgeon at NYU Langone Health.

Shown in images are members of the Duke CT Surgery team at STS, Tong speaking at the STS award presentation, and the three recipients of the inaugural award – (L-R) Drs. Backhus, Ellis, and Tong.

Well-deserved, Betty! You truly are a rock-star mentor, surgeon, and colleague. Congratulations!

Smith to Present STS Lillehei Lecture

Former cardiovascular and thoracic division chief Peter K. Smith, MD, will present the C. Walton Lillehei Plenary Lecture tomorrow, 9 a.m. PST, at STS 2023 in San Diego. Congratulations, Peter!

Palma to Receive ASE Teaching Award

We learned this week that Richard Palma, Program Director and Clinical Coordinator of the Cardiac Ultrasound Certificate Program at Duke, will join Madhav Swaminathan among the distinguished awardees at the American Society of Echocardiography 2023 Scientific Sessions. Palma has been named the recipient of ASE’s 2023 Cardiovascular Sonographer Distinguished Teacher Award.

The award will be formally announced during ASE’s annual awards presentations at the 34th Annual Scientific Sessions on Saturday, June 24, 2023, at Gaylord National Resort, National Harbor, in Prince George’s County, MD.

Palma is an Advanced Cardiac Sonographer and teaches echocardiography to students, staff, and Duke Cardiology fellows. He is internationally known as an educator of echocardiography and ultrasound physics (ESP Ultrasound).

This is the second national teaching award for Palma. In 2011 he was named recipient of the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography’s Distinguished Educator award.

Congratulations, Richie – this is well-deserved!
