The ARCF honored Stanton A. Glantz, PhD with the Dr. Charles H. Hudson Award for Cardiopulmonary Public Health, given at the largest national meeting of respiratory therapists held each year.
Glantz, from San Francisco, CA, has dedicated his career to ensuring people with asthma, COPD, and other pulmonary conditions have the information and education they need to stay as healthy as possible. Dr. Glantz is the American Legacy Foundation Distinguished Professor of Tobacco Control and conducts research on a wide range of topics ranging from the health effects of secondhand smoke (with particular emphasis on the cardiovascular system) to the efficacy of different tobacco control policies. He has authored four books, served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology for ten years, was elected to the Institute of Medicine in 2005, and is a member of the California State Scientific Review Panel on Toxic Air Contaminants.
The annual Hudson award recognizes efforts to positively influence the public’s awareness of cardiopulmonary health and wellness.
