Do you know a North Carolina ACP member deserving of recognition for his/her track record of service? The North Carolina ACP Awards Committee would like your help identifying members for the 2020 Dr. Gary Greenberg Memorial Award for Volunteerism and Community Service.

The Chapter Volunteerism and Community Service Award was instituted in 1999 to recognize the work of members who are involved in volunteerism and community service activities. Volunteerism, like a commitment to continuing education, is an established tradition for internists. In 2019, the award was renamed to “Dr. Gary Greenberg Memorial Award for Volunteerism and Community Service” in memory of Gary N. Greenberg, MD, FACP. Dr. Greenberg was a long-time ACP member in Durham, NC, and recipient of the Volunteerism and Community Service Award in 2014 in recognition of his work as medical director of the Open Door Clinic, at Urban Ministries of Wake County. His legacy of service to the uninsured also included active roles with the Partnership for a Healthy Durham, Durham CAN, Project Access of Durham, Carolina Jews for Justice, Doctors for America, and HealthCare for All, NC.
