The Lifetime Achievement Gala of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America did double duty -- it honored the co-founder and board chair of the Maryland-Greater Washington chapter, and raised some $21,000 for a Breathmobile, an asthma clinic on wheels.
Some 130 people gathered at the Center Club to honor Dr. Philip Norman, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the organization. Well-wishers included his wife, Marion, their two daughters, son and five grandchildren.
Also in the congratulatory crowd: foundation executive director Mary-anne Ellis; event honorary co-chairs Dr. Lawrence M. Lichtenstein and Dr. Peter S. Creticos; event committee members Heather Lamont and Michele Jackson; board VP Dr. LeLeng To; board members Mona Tsouklexis and Linda Borschuk; Pat Pullen, Merck & Co. health-science associate; Dr. Mark Liu, pulmonary and allergy specialist at the Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center; Dr. Jay Perman, pediatrics chair at the University of Maryland School of Medicine; and Zoe Togias, legal counsel with the World Bank.
