GALANTY AWARD
Harry GalantyThe Harry L. Galanty, MD Young Investigator's Award is presented at the AMSSM Annual Meeting for the most outstanding research presentation by a member who is a sports medicine fellow or who has recently completed fellowship training.

The award was established in 2003 to honor Harry Galanty, MD, a charter member of the AMSSM, who passed away in 1999 at the age 36. Harry's contributions to sports medicine combined clinical service, and a commitment to teaching and research. He had established himself as a leader in each of his post-fellowship positions, and he accomplished this within just a few years of completing his training. Beyond these achievements, Harry was a respected colleague and friend to many in the sports medicine community. The AMSSM is proud to be able to offer this award in his memory.

Recipient receives a $500 award and plaque.

HOUGH MEMORIAL LECTURE
The David O. Hough Memorial Lecture is presented each year at the AMSSM Annual Meeting by a distinguished physician of sports medicine. While the subject may vary, this lecture is meant to highlight an important philosophical topic at the core of sports medicine. Its purpose is to challenge and create discussion among society members. Dr. Hough was a Founder and major contributor to the efforts of founding AMSSM. As Director of Sports Medicine at Michigan State University, he helped establish one of this country's first fellowship programs and bring it to national prominence. Modeling good comprehensive athletic care and committing to full coverage of events, Dave worked tirelessly to promote a system of quality care for all athletes. His premature death cut short a career that spanned two decades of work at the local, state and national level. He was considered a fine teacher, role model and leader within the field of sports medicine.

"The role of the healer must not be lost in the complexity of medicine." — AMSSM Founder David O. Hough, MD (1946-1996)
