Tomsick and Abbottsmith Get Kaplan Award

Published April 2005

Thomas Tomsick, MD, and Charles Abbottsmith, MD, have won the Samuel Kaplan, MD, Visionary Award for their contributions to cardiovascular medicine.

Dr. Tomsick, professor and director of neuroradiology, and Dr. Abbottsmith, adjunct professor of cardiology, received their awards Feb. 26 at the American Heart Association's 11th Annual Heart Ball.

Dr. Tomsick has been a member of the College of Medicine faculty since 1976 and is a world-renowned interventional neuroradiologist. He pioneered new treatments for bleeding strokes and also helped develop techniques that deliver clot-busting drugs directly to the blockage in the brain.

Dr. Abbottsmith, director of cardiology at Christ Hospital, received the award for his innovations in cardiovascular research over three decades.
