Jeffrey Brent, clinical professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, has received the Matthew J. Ellenhorn Award from the American College of Medical Toxicology. Each year, the organization bestows the honor on an individual for their contributions to the field medical toxicology.
Brent will be recognized at the annual meeting of the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology. He will have the opportunity to deliver a keynote address on a topic of his choice or have one presented in his honor. The award is both honorary and financial.
The award is in memory of Ellenhorn, who had a distinguished career as an educator and clinician and was an early member of, and examiner for, the American Board of Medical Toxicology.
