At the 2015 AAAAI Annual Meeting, the ARTrust (now known as the AAAAI Foundation) presented the inaugural ARTrust Service Awards to John A. Anderson, MD, FAAAAI and Mr. Jerome Schultz. The ARTrust Service Award was developed by the ARTrust Steering Committee to recognize individuals who have made notable and significant efforts to grow the organization.
Anderson and Schultz first began working with the ARTrust when it was known as the Education and Research Trust (ERT). Anderson was the first chairman of the organization, and Schultz was a long-time staff member. Their ongoing dedication and support has allowed the ARTrust/AAAAI Foundation to grow, and to award 94 grants totaling over $5.6 million dollars since 1993.
