Honoring our AZBio Veterans
Our freedom and our opportunities have been protected and paid for by the sacrifices of our veterans. They dedicated their lives, talents and time to a common goal - protecting and serving others. Today, our AZBio veterans serve in new ways. They may have traded their uniforms for a doctor's white coat, a lab coat, or a business suit but the goal remains the same. For what they did then and where they are now...we salute them. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." Many of America's veterans depend on us to help them as they heal and as they age. Our work matters. So does the work of organizations that support them like the Wounded Warrior Project. If you wish to honor a veteran, you can help by donating at woundedwarriorproject.org . To all of our AZBio Veterans, Thank You.

Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury , lecturing around the United States and the world. Now he joined Phoenix Children's to expand a program that surpasses the typical model of pediatric care. For some, it's playing a musical instrument. For others, it's painting. But for P. David Adelson, MD, FACS, FAAP, the director of the Hospital's Barrow Neurological Institute and chief of neurosurgery, his passion is a bit atypical. "My hobby is neuroscience," he says. "The heart's a pump, the kidney's a filter – those are all simple functions which are there to support who we are and what we do." But the brain controls it all, he says. "I just looked at the brain and neurosciences as the next frontier; studying something of which I would never get bored." Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury clinical management, lecturing around the United States and the world. He has been published in numerous medical and scientific journals defining "state-of-the art" in the care of children with traumatic brain injuries.

Leland Albright Endowed Professor of Neurosurgery/Pediatric Neurosurgery at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Vice Chairman, (Research) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine , one of the most prominent neurosurgical departments in the country.
