The STFM Gold Humanism Award, funded by The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, honors an STFM member who best embodies the attributes of humanism in medicine through his or her work as a family medicine faculty member. Humanism in medicine is characterized by a respectful and compassionate relationship between physicians, as well as all other members of the health care team and their patients. It reflects attitudes and behaviors that are sensitive to the values and the cultural and ethnic backgrounds of others.
Congratulations to Dr. Sharon Dobie who received her award on Monday, May 2 at the Awards Program at the STFM Annual Spring Meeting in Minneapolis. Please join us in congratulating Sharon on this outstanding accomplishment.
