We are pleased to announce that Henry E. Rice, MD, Professor and Chief of Pediatric General Surgery, has received the 2018 Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award. This award is presented annually to a Duke faculty member who embodies compassion, sensitivity, respect for patients and colleagues, and clinical excellence. Sponsored by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, this honor recognizes faculty of the highest caliber at nearly 80 of the nation’s medical schools.
Because this year’s nominees were exceptionally impressive, the faculty committee decided to award the prize to two recipients: Dr. Rice and Dr. Margarita Bidegain in the Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Rice was nominated in recognition of his exceptional service to patients. Dean Mary Klotman will present the award and a monetary prize to both Dr. Rice and Dr. Bidegain at the annual School of Medicine Faculty Meeting this spring.
Congratulations to Dr. Rice on this distinguished honor!
