For a career dedicated to the practice and service of our profession, the Florida Chapter is honored to nominate Cecil B. Wilson, MD, MACP for the Centennial Award.

A board member of FSIM and ASIM, he served as Secretary, Treasurer, Vice-President and President-elect of FSIM. Within ACP, he ascended to Chair of the Board of Regents. His ACPASIM Merger Committee led to today's unified College.

He is an unparalleled voice for internists on state and national levels. His peers have elected him President of the Florida Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and the World Medical Association. Yet despite his national and international obligations, Dr. Wilson remains a fixture at Chapter events; most recently strategizing with residents and new chapter leaders at this year's meetings.

In summary, Dr. Wilson exemplifies the definition of mentor, teacher, friend, humanitarian, visionary, and leader. His life embodies the foundation of the College's Core Values.
