A highlight of the opening ceremony was the awarding of the Erich Saling award to Professors Aris Antsaklis and Manuel Carrapato
Erich was at his oratorical best as he saluted and roasted these two legendary perinatologists.
Aris and Manuel were respected as paragons of obstetrics and pediatrics.
Erich went on to recognize their singular talents: Aris as a land loving Greek sailor and Manuel as an anglophile extraordinaire
Each received a beautiful sculpture, the admiration of the large international audience, and the gratitude of the WAPM.
