Honor by the Hellenic Hippocratic Society for Alkis Pierides, M.D. (NEPH ’78)

Dear old  MAYO colleagues and good friends, especially in Nephrology and Prof V Torress,

I thought  I should  sent you  a  typed  note, regarding my recent honour  by the Hellenic Hippocratic Society.

This Hellenic Hippocratic Society honours annually two distinguished  Greek  Doctors worldwide for their:

  1. a) Humanistic practice of medicine b) Continuous high quality research and c) Continuous post graduate medical education.

This year I was fortunate to be one of the two honoured physicians and the ceremony took  place in Athens,  on Saturday  5th  of  March.

My research  interests currently centre  around inherited  kidney diseases  with over 120  publications  and numerous oral presentations  in many Renal International Meetings. My  interest  in continuous  post graduatemedical  education covers mostly Cyprus and Greece with the organization of  many educational meetings. In Greece we have established  the Halcyon  Days of  Nephrology, an annual meeting held each year from 1999 to the present time.

Kind Regards,

Dr Alkis Pierides FRCP, FACP
Ex Director General, Dept. Nephrology NGH
Ex Associate Professor of Medicine-Nephrology, Mayo Clinic, USA
