Nominations are now open for the 2020 special awards to be given by the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society. The award recipients will be recognized at the Society’s Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner on Saturday, January 30, 2021. The SLMMS 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 21 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 (two or three paragraphs) explaining why the nominee should be recognized; if possible, include the nominee’s biographical sketch or curriculum vitae. SLMMS members may submit more than one nomination for each award. 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 Wednesday, July 1, 2020. 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. No materials will be returned, and the award recipients will be notified this fall.
