  • Owen F. Thomas, MD Award
  • Upton-Hemphill Award

Upon approval of the Board, the President shall notify the individual of their nomination for this award by letter and by personal telephone call.

At the direction of the Board, the committee is also charged with selecting nominations for other awards the Board may deem appropriate as a one-time acknowledgement.
