The History Behind the Awards Given at NEAUA: Max K. Willscher, MD and Wyland F. Leadbetter, MD

By Karim Hamawy, MD, Historian
Two awards are given annually during the NEAUA in recognition of the tremendous contributions that two individuals have made to our profession. The first is presented to a urology resident in memory of Dr. Max K. Willscher, a pioneer and a prolific contributor to urologic care. The New England Section has been presenting the Max K. Willscher Award since 1995 to the best presentation by a urology resident at the New England Section Annual Meeting. The second award, named the Leadbetter Lectureship, is given in honor of one of the great legends in urology. Dr. Leadbetter's contributions have shaped many aspects of our field. The Section has been supporting the Lectureship since 1974 with forty four outstanding speakers and interesting lectures. The following link will lead you to the history section of the NEAUA. Here you will find more detailed bios of these two individuals who practiced in and provided so much to the New England Section, and helped shape the field of urology.

We look forward to seeing you in Hartford!

Program Co-Chairs: Jared Bieniek, MD and Joseph Wagner, MD
