Emergency Information Take Over
Dean Reece has been honored by the Boy Scouts for his committment to community service.
E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA, vice president for Medical Affairs, University of Maryland, and the John Z. and the Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and Dean, University of Maryland School of Medicine, was chosen as the 2010 recipient of the Health Services Leadership Award, presented by the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. He was recognized at the 17th Annual Health Services Leadership Award Luncheon, held at the warehouse at Camden Yards on October 19, 2010.
The Health Services Leadership Award honors an individual who exemplifies the ideals of the Boy Scouts of America, who has a wide influence with their peers, and who has committed outstanding community service, as evidenced by the interest and leadership they have given to many worthwhile organizations. The luncheon chairman was Brian Browne, MD, professor and chair, Department of Emergency Medicine.
In addition to honoring Dean Reece, the luncheon also raised money to support Special Needs Scouting, a program designed to reach out to youth (boys ages 6-20 and girls ages 14-20) with disabilities. The keys to Special Needs Scouting are awareness, education and flexibility. A staff person dedicated to Special Needs Scouting has been employed to manage this program. This individual will garner the support of other organizations in the Baltimore Area Council that desire to serve youth with special needs.
The Baltimore Area Council serves more than 46,000 boys and girls and 12,000 adults in the city of Baltimore and the counties of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to instill values in young people and to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential.
Past recipients of the Health Services Leadership Award include Robert Chrencik, president and CEO of the University of Maryland Medical System; William “Brit” Kirwan, Chancellor of the University System of Maryland; Dr. Tom Scalea, professor of Surgery and director of the Program in Trauma at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Physician-in-Chief at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center; and Dr. Donald Wilson, former Dean of the School of Medicine.
