Nominations Now Open for 2018 Heroes in Medicine Awards

Michael Dennis, M.D., the president of the Palm Beach County Medical Society Services, recently issued a call for community Heroes — people who place the needs of others above themselves and have made significant, positive impacts on the people they serve in the greater health care community. Nominations for the 15th Annual Heroes in Medicine Awards event are open now through Feb. 9, 2018, at 12 p.m.

According to the event’s co-chairpersons Greg Quattlebaum and Jibby Ciric, honorees in several categories will be honored April 20, 2018, at the 15th annual luncheon to be held at the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion in West Palm Beach. These prestigious awards honor people and organizations throughout Palm Beach County who use skills and resources to provide outstanding services. Proceeds from the event benefit Project Access, which provides resources and health care for low income, uninsured residents of Palm Beach County as well as other valued programs of the non-profit PBCMS Services.
