Two ACR members, Richard L. Ehmen, MD, FACR, and Bruce R. Rosen, MD, PhD, were recently elected to the Institute of Medicine. Election to the IOM is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of medicine and health.

In addition, IOM honored two of its members for outstanding service to the organization. The Institute also presented the 2010 Gustav O. Lienhard Award to Joseph A.

O'Brien received the 2010 Rhoda and Bernard Sarnat International Prize in Mental Health in recognition of their complementary achievements in addiction science.
