Recognizing Our Past and Honoring Our Future
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 upcoming 2023 Award Celebration at the historical Mark Twain House in Hartford on May 18.
During the event, we will announce the award honorees of the HMS Loving Cup Award, the Dr. Gurdon D. Russell Supporter Award, and the Horace Wells Humanitarian Awards. These awards celebrate how far we have come since our inception and our future trajectory together.
