 Gary J. Tucker M.D. Award for Lifetime Achievement in Neuropsychiatry

Stuart C. Yudofsky, MD, FANPA received the inaugural Gary J. Tucker M.D. Award for Lifetime Achievement in Neuropsychiatry at the 25th annual meeting of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) in Seattle on February 18, 2014.  Dr. Yudofsky is the D.C. and Irene Ellwood Distinguished Service Professor & Chair of Psychiatry, and the Beth K. and Stuart C. Yudofsky Presidential Chair in Neuropsychiatry in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.  The award, established in memory of Dr. Gary J Tucker, former Chair of the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry, past president of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, former chair of the Dartmouth Department of Psychiatry, and an early ANPA leader, is the highest honor awarded by ANPA.

Characterizing Dr. Yudofsky as “one of the giants of Neuropsychiatry,” Sheldon Benjamin, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at University of Massachusetts Medical School and ANPA President, recognized Dr. Yudofsky for being the founding editor of the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, the official journal of the American Neuropsychiatric Association; the co-author of the American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and 45 other texts; the author of numerous peer-reviewed articles and chapters in neuropsychiatry; a former President of ANPA and a longtime advisor to the organization.  In presenting the award, Benjamin described Yudofsky’s relationship to ANPA as “author, editor, advocate, mentor, and friend.”  “It is especially meaningful,” said Benjamin, “that the inaugural Gary J Tucker Award could be presented at an ANPA meeting in Gary’s home town of Seattle, with his wife, Sharon, and daughter, Clare present.”
