Baumhauer to be honored at international Athena summit

Winner of this year’s Rochester Athena Award, Judith Baumhauer M.D. is to be honored next week at the Athena International 18th Annual Leadership Summit as one of 30 Athena Leadership Award recipients.

Founded in 1982, the Athena organization is honoring Baumhauer and the 29 other awardees to mark its 30th anniversary. The Leadership Award honorees were chosen from a pool of 6,000 current and past local Athena Award winners.

A University of Rochester Medical Center orthopedist, Baumhauer finished a stint as president of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society in July. She was the first woman to head the 43-year old professional group. This month, Baumhauer begins a term as president of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

“URMC has a terrific mentoring environment for young faculty, residents and students. I am proof of that,” Baumhauer said.  “I’m thankful to the Women's Council of the Rochester Business Alliance for recognizing my efforts and starting this ball to really roll.  Rochester is full of amazing women leaders in business, medicine, and education.  I’ll be shouting the Rochester name from the leadership platform in Chicago.”

Athena Leadership awardees are slated to be honored Oct. 15 in Chicago at a gala kicking off the organization’s two-day Leadership Summit.
