W. Lester Henry Award for Diversity and Access to Care
In honor of: Dr. W. Lester Henry, the first African-American Regent and Master of the College (award named in his honor 2012).
The award is given to an ACP member with outstanding accomplishments in advancing diversity in clinical medicine or research, and/or access to care in relation to diverse populations. Activities must pertain predominantly to work in the United States. “Diverse populations” are understood to include: 1) economically or socially disadvantaged patient populations, for example, minorities, immigrant groups, or the homeless; and 2) groups underrepresented in the healthcare workforce.
Nominating and supporting letters should address:
- Are the nominee’s significant contributions in advancing clinical medicine/research, in access to care in relation to diverse populations, or both?
- Which groups specifically have benefitted from the nominee’s contributions?
- Have the nominee’s contributions been sustained over time?
