In an effort to recognize excellent medical care in the community, the Alachua County Medical Society (ACMS) has established two awards:
Health and Wellness Advocacy Award and Outstanding Clinical Practice Award
The recipients are recognized at the ACMS Annual Meeting in May of each year. “We established this award program to celebrate some examples of the superb health care that we have in our community”, said ACMS President David E. Winchester, MD. “As an organization representing physicians in our county we felt there was a need for this kind of recognition and that we possessed the knowledge and expertise to make it happen.”
