This award was established in memory of Dr. Cameron Lewis, who exemplified the ideal of compassionate medicine. In addition to residency as a Pathologist, Dr. Lewis was also the assistant director at the blood bank and participated in many outreach programs. Dr. Lewis was known by peers and friends as an incredibly caring physician before she tragically passed on during her second year in residency. Even through death, she managed to care for others; she donated her heart so that another could live.
The Cameron C. Lewis, M.D., Compassion in Medicine Award is presented to the senior medical student(s) that have demonstrated a combination of community concern and most importantly, exceptional compassion.
