Two ISHLT members are worthy of our undivided attention and deserve the spotlight in this month's Tattling Links page. We think you will agree!

Cardiologist Sharon Hunt to Receive Hewlett Award
Stanford University School of Medicine News
February 2014

sharon huntAfter years of research, patient care, teaching, winning awards, mentoring trainees, and traveling all over the world, Sharon Hunt, MD, has done almost everything a transplant cardiologist could do. Added to her list of accomplishments will soon be the 2013 Hewlett Award. Walter Albion Hewlett was known as a physician of rare compassion and extraordinary skills. He was recognized for his outstanding contributions to patient care and medical science, much like Sharon Hunt.
