KUDOS
for Our Fellow
PCMS Members

Dr. Kenneth Wasserman
Receives Prestigious
Sports Medicine Award
PCMS member Kenneth Wasserman, MD, has received the James R. Andrews
Excellence in Baseball Sports Medicine award. The award recognizes individuals who have
significantly contributed to baseball sports medicine, and is presented by the American
Sports Medicine Institute.
"I was shocked to receive the award," he told Philadelphia Medicine. "Individuals such
as Frank Jobe, who invented Tommy John surgery, have received the award."
The rest of us shouldn't be shocked that Dr. Wasserman has been honored. Since he
founded Major League Baseball's skin cancer program 18 years ago, 41,000 baseball players
and team employees have undergone screenings. Dr. Wasserman is an assistant clinical
professor at Hahnemann University Hospital, clinical instructor at Jefferson University
Hospital, and the team dermatologist for the Baltimore Orioles.

Dr. Michael DellaVecchia Elected to American
College of Surgeons Board of Governors
Michael DellaVecchia, MD, PhD, FACS, FICS, the immediate past president of PCMS,
has been elected to the Board of Governors of the American College of Surgeons (ACS)
as the Governor-at-Large representing ACS Fellows in the Metropolitan Philadelphia
Chapter. Governors-at-Large are an official, direct communications link between the
Fellows of the College and the members of the Board of Governors.
Dr. DellaVecchia has practiced ophthalmology for 33 years. He has written several
book chapters and articles on ophthalmology, pathology and biophysics and is presently
doing research on photonics, an area of study combining his MD and his doctorate in
biomed/physics training.
He is a past president of the Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter of Surgeons, and is
a member of the International College of Surgeons.

Congratulations,
Drs. DellaVecch ia
and Wasserman!
