做為全球數一數二規模的生殖學術研討會，第68屆ASRM（美國生殖醫學會）在聖地牙哥舉行的同時，由於難得聚集了世界各地生殖醫學專家，很多重要活動也在此零時差地舉辦，2012年10月23日晚間我被通知接受一個Lifetime achievement award of GCARM全球華人生殖醫學終身成就獎。
全球華人生殖醫學會創立已十餘年，成員為世界各國對生殖醫學有專長的華人醫師，由於在台灣的工作非常忙碌，較無暇參與其舉辦的各項活動，這次獲頒終身成就獎，是在美國生殖醫學會2012年年會的會議總部所在Marriott Marquis and Marina Hotel的Balboa and Mission Hill Ballrooms 舉行。
GCARM是The Global Chinese Association for REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE 的簡稱，這次頒獎典禮台灣的學生陳啟煌、陳碧華也趕來參加。
