Accepting Nominations: 2007 International Medicine Awards
January 1st, 2007 by INMED
The story of medical missions is highlighted by individuals who inspire their colleagues towards similar selfless service. INMED is pleased to continue this effective tradition by announcing nomination for the 2007 International Medicine Awards. At the 2007 Exploring Medical Missions Conference INMED will present two awards: the 2007 International Medicine Award and the 2007 Fight Against HIV Award.
The 2007 International Medicine Award will be offered to an individual who has made a significant contribution to health in developing nations. The 2007 Fight Against HIV Award will similarly be offered to one who has made a significant contribution toward control of HIV in developing nations.
Qualifications for nomination of both awards include:
• Being a member of any health profession
• Serving a significant period in a developing nation
• Being a role model who others can emulate
INMED is now accepting nominations for both awards. Most people engaged in international medicine are found working extended hours in isolation, and under severe financial and social restraints. Normally unnoticed and under appreciated, seldom is heard an encouraging word in their day-to-day lives. The Awards are an opportunity to acknowledge and encourage these individuals.
To nominate someone for either award, please submit your recommendation via email at our Contact page. The INMED Board of Directors will review all nominations, and make the Awards announcement at this year’s Exploring Medical Missions Conference. INMED invites all health professionals to join us in this event!
