Infectious diseases organization honors 5 faculty

Five faculty members at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have been elected fellows of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). They are Ernie-Paul Barrette, MD, Jeffrey Henderson, MD, PhD, Stephen Liang, MD, and Hilary Reno, MD, PhD, all associate professors of medicine in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases; and David Hunstad, MD, director of the infectious diseases division in the Department of Pediatrics.

The IDSA honored a total of 181 physicians and scientists as fellows this year. Fellowship in IDSA is considered among the highest honors in the field of infectious diseases.

To be considered for the honor, potential fellows must be nominated by their peers and must meet specified criteria that include continuing identification with the field of infectious diseases, national or regional recognition, and publication of scholarly work. Nominees are reviewed and elected by the IDSA Board of Directors.

See the IDSA release for more information about the honor.
