Compassion’s other name: Dr. William Pearce
It may have come as no surprise to his colleagues, mentees and patients at Northwestern University that Dr. William Pearce, Charles and Violet Baldwin Professor of Surgery Emeritus, was named the 2019 Lifetime Achievement awardee by the Society for Vascular Surgery at its annual meeting in June.
At Northwestern he has been an accomplished leader of one of the strongest vascular surgical departments in the nation. He mentored countless professionals, not just fellows, residents and students, but also nurses and faculty.
