Arnold "Gil" Diethelm, MD served as the 18th President of the ASTS. He graduated from Cornell Medical College in 1958 and following a general surgery residency completed a fellowship at the Harvard Medical School. In 1967, Dr. Diethelm moved to Birmingham, Alabama where he initiated clinical transplantation activities and performed the first successful kidney transplant in the State of Alabama. Dr. Diethelm led many transplant efforts in the Southeast, embracing early efforts at organ sharing, and he continues to work actively in the organ procurement organization serving the citizens of Alabama. A transplant recipient himself, Dr. Diethelm received a new liver at the age of 70 and adds the perspective of being a transplant patient to his great leadership accomplishments in organ transplantation.
