Physician Recognition Award
The Chicago Medical Society’s Henrietta Herbolsheimer, MD, Annual Public Service Award recognizes outstanding contributions, which need not be health-care related, in the fields of local community service and government. The award is intended to better describe to the city of Chicago and Cook County the work of physicians in their communities and to promote the interest of CMS members in participating in civic affairs.
Previous award winners have been honored for such achievements as organizing local health fairs and taking part in neighborhood youth programs. The honoree MUST be a CMS member, and he or she will be selected primarily on the basis of service contributions to the community. Past presidents of CMS are not eligible until five years after their term of office has ended.
