The Chicago Medical School Humanitarian Award 2013
The CMS Humanitarian Award recognizes the full measure of a person’s worth, as someone whose efforts on behalf of others, especially the poor, define a quality of character that embodies selfless service to improve health. The CMS Humanitarian Committee considered a number of very impressive applications. We are very proud of the humanitarian accomplishments of our students. The CMS Humanitarian Committee is delighted to announce the winners of the Chicago Medical School Humanitarian Award 2013.
The following M4 and M3 students have been awarded the Chicago Medical School Humanitarian Award!
Su Aung – Graduation: June 2013, Chicago Medical School (CMS)
“Throughout my travels, I am always humbled and inspired by the stories of people I am privileged to meet and learn from. The experiences reminded me of still the expansive need for basic care and rights we often take for granted in the States.” – Su Aung
“Su brings her passions and talents out into the field helping people, as well as behind the scenes endlessly organizing and fundraising the efforts. Both roles are necessary to help people, and both are challenging. Serving in either area makes you a humanitarian.” – Conor Ryan
“Her recent induction into the Gold Humanism Honor Society is an additional testament to her commitment in demonstrating the hallmarks of the society that include excellence in clinical care, integrity, compassion, empathy, respect and service.” – Farah Chaus
Jennifer Lobb – Graduation: June 2014, Chicago Medical School (CMS)
“I spoke with many women who were not able to leave their husbands because of financial limitations and lack of access to education, and who were victims of abuse, including exposure to sexually transmitted infections.” – Jennifer Lobb
“Ms. Lobb consistently engages with her time, insights and soul. She serves and cares for people who are poor or disadvantaged locally and outside the US. She invests in the preparation of peers so their global health experiences will be contributory and enriching.” – Inis Jane Bardella, MD, FAAFP
“She has aided in educating and facilitating discussion about travel and working abroad among current M3s who are planning to do rotations abroad next year. Students who have attended the sessions she has led have found them to be insightful and jammed packed full of cultural wisdom.” – Naomi Thompson
We wish to congratulate all of our award recipients as well as all of our applicants and wish them all the best. Congratulations!
