Dr. Robert Rosenwasser Receives Strittmatter Award

Robert H. Rosenwasser, MD, MBA, was awarded the prestigious Strittmatter Award by The Philadelphia County Medical Society on June 25, 2021. Since 1923, the Strittmatter Award, the Philadelphia County Medical Society’s most prestigious scientific award, honors a physician who has demonstrated to the Society the most valuable contributions to the healing art, surgical or medical. 

Dr. Rosenwasser is among the country’s first dually trained cerebrovascular neurosurgeons. He is the Jewell L.
