Upon receiving the award, Dr. Mansour stated, “I am honored to be included in this esteemed group of people.  Although awards are sometimes presented individually, these accomplishments are rarely, if ever, done alone.  My career thus far has been greatly impacted by several mentors and supporters along the way, in a multitude of different facets of my life.  I would not have received this award without them.  We all as a team, along with countless institutions and organizations around the world, are working as hard as possible to continue to have an impact and improve upon how we treat and care for our patients.”
