In sponsoring the nomination, California Urological Association President David Benjamin, MD, highlighted Rep. Lieu’s commitment to public service and leadership on issues that impact the urologic community. The AACU Board of Directors was particularly impressed with his support for integrated patient-centered care while serving as chair of the California Senate Business, Professions, and Economic Development Committee.

We anticipate that Rep. Lieu will accept this award in person at the 8th Annual AACU State Society Network Advocacy Conference, scheduled for Sept. 18-19, 2015, in suburban Chicago, Ill.
