R. Benton Adkins, Jr. Distinguished Service Award 2012

Keith L. Moore, Professor Emeritus in Division of Anatomy, Department of Surgery, Former Chair of Anatomy and Associate Dean for Basic Medical Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.   Dr. Moore was one of the founding members of the AACA.   His past and present activities include research, teaching, and publishing widely on the subjects of human anatomy and embryology. The text for which he is most widely known (now co-authored with Dr. Art Dalley) Clinically Oriented Anatomy , is the most popular English-language anatomy textbook in the world, used by scientists and physicians alike. The book is especially popular because of its clinical "blue boxes" that relate the classical anatomy to real-world concepts in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.   Dr. Moore is also active in other anatomical associations including American Association of Anatomists and Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology, among others.   His awards and honors are lengthy and indicative of his stature in anatomical circles.   His dedication to the AACA and its activities was officially recognized in 1994 when he was made an Honorary Member.   He continues to invest in developing the field through his creation of Keith L. Moore/Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins Presidential Address Award of the AACA in 2004, and a newKeith and Marion Moore Blue Box Award for the best student publication annually in Clinical Anatomy .   The AACA continues to be enriched by his passion for the education of students in anatomy and the training of new future educators in the field.
