Kaye E. Wilkins, D.V.D., M.D., clinical professor of orthopaedics, has a heart for children. Thatís why, when he won the American Airlines American Way Road Warrior essay contest, he donated the prize to help educate surgeons who treat young onesí orthopaedic problems. Dr. Wilkins gave 1 million air miles and 2 million Hilton Hotels bonus points to the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America.

"I just knew that the use of these miles and points could help many doctors come to the U.S. for training and that, ultimately, people could get the medical help they need in underdeveloped countries," Dr. Wilkins told American Way magazine. "The society can get so much more out of this wonderful prize than I could ever get out of it."
