Dr. Richard Glassberg Receives the AHF Cortese-Lippincott Award

Dr. Richard Glassberg Receives the AHF Cortese-Lippincott Award

On Saturday night, January 22, 2011, at the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association's annual installation dinner, Dr. Richard Glassberg received the prestigious Animal Health Foundation's Cortese- Lippincott award.  The award, in memory of Drs. Joe Cortese and Larry Lippincott was created to "recognize and honor an individual who has gone above and beyond in making the world a better place for both animals and humans.  The recipient has also gone above and beyond in community service, service and education of the veterinary community and the human-animal bond." Mrs. Goldie Cortese of San Clemente was at the festivities.

Dr. Mark Malo, Vice President of the AHF Board of Trustees, gave Dr. Glassberg the award stating: "Dick's dedication to his patients, their owners and the bonds they share have been exemplary.  He is a leader in a  profession that prides itself on empathy and compassion. Dr. Glassberg has never walked away from an animal in need."

Dr. Glassberg has been on the Board of Trustees of AHF for 43 years.  Dr. Malo remarked "I believe that without his constant vigilance over these forty plus years, I doubt this organization would be the viable entity it is today."  " He is someone whom I consider to be one of the finest veterinarians and finest people I have ever met."
