Each year, the Hartford Medical Society brings the past and present together through webinars and educational events to honor Connecticut's medical history. As we continue to preserve our past to pave the way for the future, we're thrilled to announce our 2023 Award Winners.

We are proud to honor six distinguished individuals for their contributions to the betterment of the Greater Hartford Area through our Horace Wells Humanitarian Awards. We look forward to recognizing individuals who better the world and our local community through volunteer efforts, humanitarian support, and exemplary growth as a medical professional, student, or resident. The Humanitarian Awards will include three categories in which individuals have the chance to be honored: The Distinguished Service Award, Gurdon D. Russel HMS Supporter Award and the Rising Practitioner Award. In support of their work and commitment to giving back, the honorees in each category will be awarded $1,000 to donate to their chosen non-profit organization.
