March of Dimes honors West Penn Allegheny neonatologist Alan Lantzy, MD

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

PITTSBURGH – Alan Lantzy, MD, of West Penn Allegheny Health System, was honored for his years of service to premature infants and their families, at the March of Dimes, West Penn Division’s 15th annual Signature Chefs Auction. 

Dr. Lantzy, Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at West Penn Hospital, was the Medical Honoree at the annual auction held at the Westin Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.

Dr. Lantzy was recognized for his career in pediatrics and neonatology, particularly his dedication in the past 20 years to the care of premature babies and his concern about the long-term challenges to health and learning that many Neonatal Intensive Care Unit graduates face. He has taken a particular interest for the past 10 years in the long-term vision problems faced by some NICU graduates.

West Penn Allegheny Health System was a Presenting Sponsor for the Pittsburgh Signature Chefs Auction, which raised more than $110,000 for March of Dimes' efforts to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

In addition to sampling signature dishes, guests bid on unique auction items including gourmet dinners prepared in the home and vacation packages. KDKA-TV’s Kristine Sorensen and Jon Burnett served as Mistress and Master of Ceremonies.

Every November, the March of Dimes focuses the nation’s attention on the impact of premature births on babies and families, and on opportunities for prevention. In the United States today, one in eight babies is born prematurely, including more than 17,000 yearly in Pennsylvania. Funds raised by Signature Chefs Auction support lifesaving research and programs that offer hope of preventing infant health threats.
