Kudos to Liza Halcomb MD who was one of a select few physicians at Barnes Hospital to receive a Distinguished Teaching Award this November. Liza is an Emergency Room Attending and Director of Toxicology at Barnes Jewish Hospital. Here are some photos from the recent award ceremony.

Given the clan’s state of hygiene (Old Granny firmly believed in the beneficial effect of dirt) it is reassuring to know that in case of need help is readily available. Also reassuring for those of us that spend a lot of time outdoors is that Dr Halcomb has special expertise in snake bite. She has just been named the physician consultant for the world famous herpetarium at the St Louis Zoo.

Congratulations to Dr Halcomb from the Chamber.

  2. Congratulations Liza! Hope never to need your expertise in snake bites… But if you want experience with gila monsters come out to Tucson sometime!
