Fourteen women members of the faculty from the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine were honored by the Bexar County Medical Society Nov. 15 for their contributions to medicine.
The occasion marked the third year that the Women in Medicine Committee of the Bexar County Medical Society has celebrated the Extraordinary Women in Medicine Leadership Awards. The Long School of Medicine (LSOM) joined Bexar County’s medical community at The Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center for the award ceremony and dinner honored a total of 47 extraordinary women in medicine.
Representatives from the LSOM dean’s office and 12 departments and centers were among the over 600 attendees. The 14 LSOM women faculty received the inaugural Colette M. Kohler, M.D. Award, which recognizes the late Colette M. Kohler, a founding faculty member of our school and a BCMS member.
