Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Chevalier Jackson was an extraordinary surgeon, pioneer in the profession, expert educator, public health activist, and advocate for diversity and inclusion in medicine. He practiced at AHN West Penn Hospital, where he invented endoscopy and bronchoscopy. He removed more than 2,000 foreign bodies from the throats of adults and children. Dr. Jackson led a national campaign to warn people of the dangers of lye and household poisons and is responsible for warning labels and the Hazardous Substances Act.
In honor of this great Pittsburgher, researcher, and surgeon, the AHN Esophageal Institute has established the Chevalier Jackson Esophageal Clinical Research Fellowship at AHN West Penn Hospital. This fellowship will help foster a new generation of healthcare professionals inspired by Dr. Jackson’s legacy. This fund will support this research fellowship and research activities to help develop innovative approaches and technologies in the management of esophageal and gastric diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), esophageal cancer, gastroparesis, and achalasia, and promote public health and inclusivity in healthcare.
