Medical Society Seeks Nominations for Annual Awards
Nominations are now being accepted for special awards to be given by the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society for 2019. The awards will be presented at the Society’s Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner on Saturday, January 25, 2020. The Council invites the membership to nominate a physician colleague for one of the following awards:
Robert E. Schlueter Leadership Award
The Schlueter Award is given, when appropriate, to a member who it is determined has met the following criteria: demonstrated leadership in organized medicine; demonstrated scientific attitude through excellent clinical practice; has been an advocate for patients on social, economic, and political matters; and involved in community service on behalf of the medical profession. This is the highest honor bestowed by the Medical Society, and it has only been presented 20 times previously.
Award of Merit
The Award of Merit is to be given, when appropriate, to recognize outstanding and distinguished contributions to scientific medicine in the St. Louis community. The nominee must be a physician; preference will be given to current or former SLMMS members, but the nominee need not be a member of SLMMS.
The President’s Award is for outstanding service to the medical profession by a member of the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society.
To submit a nomination for any of the three awards, provide a brief narrative (150-300 words) explaining why the nominee should be recognized; if possible, include the nominee’s biographical sketch or curriculum vitae. Include contact information of the person submitting the nomination, and forward all materials to Dave Nowak, Executive Vice President, in the SLMMS office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for nominations is Monday, July 1, 2019. All nominations will be reviewed by the SLMMS Nominating Committee in July, with a recommendation subject to final approval by the SLMMS Council in September. Award recipients will be notified this fall.
