Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
In recognition of her dedication and generosity in caring for numerous patients and medical students throughout Little Rock, Arkansas, Stacy A. Rudnicki, M.D. was honored as the 2013 Physician of the Year by national staffing firm, Jackson & Coker.
The award was created to draw attention to extraordinary physicians who serve as beacons in their community and the healthcare industry.
A neurologist, Dr. Rudnicki is currently professor of neurology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and the Kathryn and J. Thomas May Chair in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In addition to her service on numerous boards and committees, Dr. Rudnicki has participated in medical mission trips to Honduras, as well as advocated for ALS patients in Washington DC. She received the Paul Dunn Purpose Award for her dedication to Arkansans with ALS.
“Dr. Rudnicki has spent her career teaching medical students and providing care to patients with neurological disorders,” said Sandra Garrett, president of Jackson & Coker. “Her passion for bringing comfort and help to patients facing incurable neuromuscular disease is inspiring.”
Not long after she arrived in Little Rock, Dr. Rudnicki started to care for ALS patients. The project evolved into the UAMS ALS multidisciplinary clinic, which became a Muscular Dystrophy Association-certified ALS clinic in 2004.
Nominations were made by hospital administrators and physicians through an online survey tool. Dr. Rudnicki was selected among all nominees reviewed by an independent panel of healthcare leaders. Their decision was based upon the content quality of the nominations submitted, not the quantity of nominations.
