The Glorney-Raisbeck Award is presented annually to a clinician or basic scientist in recognition of outstanding contributions to the understanding and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The first Glorney-Raisbeck Award was presented posthumously in 1988 to Milton J. Raisbeck, MD, an exceptional cardiologist involved in the advancement of medical education and research. Since then this level of achievement has been reflected in an outstanding series of Glorney-Raisbeck awardees.
