The SPA Myron Yaster Lifetime Achievement Award was designed to acknowledge a lifetime contribution to the society’s mission to “advance the safety and quality of anesthesia care, perioperative care, and pain management in children by educating clinicians, supporting research, and fostering collaboration among clinicians, patient families, and professional organizations worldwide.”

It is a huge honor for Dr. Martin, especially since Dr. Yaster was one of his mentors at Johns Hopkins. Congratulations to Dr. Martin.
