VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO HONOR DR. CHARLES S. GREENBERG FOR HIS SUBSTANTIAL CONTRIBUTIONS IN THE FIELD OF MEDICINE AND TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE FOR THE EFFORTS HE PUTS FORTH TO INCREASE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF HIS PATIENTS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives have determined it to be fitting and proper to recognize Dr. Charles S. Greenberg for the services he provides to South Carolinians suffering from potentially life-threatening blood disorders; and
Whereas, Dr. Greenberg is a professor at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center specializing in hematology and oncology. He graduated from Drexel University College of Medicine in 1976, and completed his fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco in 1983; and
Whereas, his over forty years of practice has been marked with honors, having been awarded more than eight times for his brilliant work in the fields of hematology and oncology. Dr. Greenberg focuses his medical practice in the area of nonmalignant blood disorders. He provides consultative advice regarding new diagnostic tests for the management of bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Working in collaboration with MUSC healthcare system, he assists in the management of blood, blood products, and the cost-effective management of nonmalignant blood disorders; and
Whereas, to better understand the impact Dr. Greenberg has made, one must understand the broad spectrum of hematology. Hematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs, and blood diseases. In the medical field, hematology includes the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies, including types of hemophilia, leukemia, lymphoma, and sickle-cell anemia. It is a branch of internal medicine that deals with the physiology, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of blood-related disorders, focusing largely on lymphatic organs, bone marrow, and diagnosing blood count or platelet irregularities. Hematologists treat organs that are fed by blood cells, including lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, and lymphoid tissue; and
Whereas, clinical research on the use of new approaches to manage bleeding and thrombosis continue as national and international groups focus on life-threatening blood disorders. Dr. Greenberg's basic research is in the area of transglutaminase structure and function, and he has published in the area of Factor XIII and tissue transglutaminase biology related to hemostasis, thrombosis, wound healing, angiogenesis, and tumor growth; and
Whereas, the members of the House of Representatives are grateful to the dedication Dr. Greenberg has exhibited in such a noble pursuit and wish him much continued success and happiness. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, honor Dr. Charles S. Greenberg for his substantial contributions in the field of medicine and express gratitude for the efforts he puts forth to increase the quality of life of his patients.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Dr. Charles S. Greenberg.
