PAMED Everyday Hero Award

The Pennsylvania Medical Society’s (PAMED) Everyday Hero Award program, launched in 2018, honors member physicians who go above and beyond in providing patient care.

In response to the COVID-19 emergency, we are also calling for nominations for “COVID-19 Front Line Heroes.” We are seeing the physicians of PAMED step up to care for their patients through uncharted, daunting territory – although they tell us “I’m just doing my job” – and we want to honor them on a regular basis. Let’s honor their dedication as they continue to provide exemplary care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please nominate a physician you feel exemplifies an Everyday Hero or a COVID-19 Front Line Hero by completing the brief form.
