The West Virginia University College of Creative Arts has named 26 students as Canady Scholars. To be considered for the award, students must have a high grade-point average, faculty references and be fluent in two languages.
Robert Gustafson, MD, associate dean for faculty services and professor emeritus of cardiovascular and thoracic at the West Virginia University School of Medicine, was recently honored with the naming of a WVU Medicine Children’s Cardiac Operating Room on his behalf. The OR is located on the third floor of the new nine-story, 150-bed WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Affectionally known as “Dr. Gus” to his young patients and colleagues, he has helped save the lives of thousands of West Virginia children throughout his career. WVU Medicine colleagues joined together to raise the needed funds to name the OR in his honor.
