We would like to acknowledge and celebrate Dr. Leslie A. Gillum, MD, MPH, on recently being awarded the 2023 J. Elliot Royer Award in Neurology by UCSF Health.
The award was established in 1962 by late Oakland physician J. Elliot Royer, MD, as a bequest in his will. Its purpose was to recognize physicians making the most significant contributions to the advancement of psychiatry or neurology during the year in the San Francisco, Alameda, or Contra Costa counties. In 2000, the award was expanded to recognize both an academic professor and community-based practitioner. From year-to-year, it alternates between neurology and psychiatry recipients.
We are proud to say that two other physicians from the Neurology Medical Group of Diablo Valley were past awardees: Dr. Steven Holtz in 2008 and Dr. Raymond Stephens in 2012.
Neurology Medical Group of Diablo Valley (a division of BASS Medical Group) has striven to provide excellent neurological care to the John Muir Health System for over 40 years in the rapidly and dramatically changing landscape of neurology. We remain committed to both inpatient and outpatient neurologic care at John Muir Hospital.
Thank you for your time and attention.
