Addison and Blonsky Grant
MPS grants are offered in honor of Robert G. Addison, MD, and E. Richard Blonsky, MD. Dr. Addison was a founding member of MPS. He was the first president of the society and served on multiple committees in the early years. Dr. Blonsky was also a past-president of MPS. When he took the MPS torch, his passion for the small but growing society helped advance it for more than 20 years.
