Dr. Douglas Evans Receives 2021 ASTRO Honorary Member Award

On October 26, 2021, Dr. Douglas Evans received the 2021 Honorary Member Award at the ASTRO Annual Meeting in Chicago. Dr. Evans was nominated for this honor by radiation oncology colleagues: Dr. Beth Erickson, who serves as the ASTRO Education Council Vice Chair, and Dr. William Hall (MCW), Dr. Christopher Crane (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center) and Dr. Bruce Minsky (M. D. Anderson Cancer Center). Honorary Membership is the highest honor ASTRO bestows upon distinguished cancer researchers and leaders in disciplines other than radiation oncology, radiation physics or radiobiology. The ASTRO Board of Directors reviews candidates nominated for this award and selects one individual each year to receive Honorary Membership. Dr. Evans joined Drs. Erickson and Hall for the awards ceremony.
