Thirteen East Carolina University medical students have been inducted into the Brody School of Medicine's chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
The society recognizes fourth-year medical students who have excelled in clinical care, leadership, compassion and dedication to service.
The inductees are Shae Anderson, Ashley Hink, Sam Belknap, Ashley Mabina, Justin Black, Brian Mclendon, Ben Carr, Cierrea Roach, Hannah Fuhr, Jeff Sibrack, Kelley Haven, Chris Street and Mike Weeks. They were chosen by their peers and endorsed by a faculty panel.
An induction ceremony was Monday at Ironwood Country Club. Dr. Ronald Perkin, professor and chair of pediatrics at the Brody School of Medicine, was the keynote speaker.
The Gold Humanism Honor Society sponsors medical school chapter projects and events, research related to the society, physician development programs, lectures and conferences, and society communications. The goal of the society is to maintain a networked community that shares ideas, resources and support in order to sustain and advocate for humanism in medicine.
