DAVID C. MARTIN AWARD - $81,500 awarded to medical students

The Pennsylvania Geriatrics Society – Western Division, in their continuing commitment to provide support in the field of geriatrics, established the David C. Martin Award.

The award, established in 1999, provides an honorarium of up to $1,500.00 to medical students, including students studying other healthcare disciplines (Pharmacy and Physical Therapy) from our region to attend the Annual Conference of the American Geriatrics Society. Candidates must meet the award criteria and abstract guidelines and be selected by the Board of Directors.

This prestigious award supports students’ interest in geriatrics. The honorarium defrays the cost of travel expenses for recipients to attend the American Geriatrics Society national conference to present their work.






2019 DCM Award

Medical students, including students studying other healthcare disciplines (Pharmacy & Physical Therapy) from the PAGS-WD region* whose abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the 2019 AGS Conference will be contacted by the Society, once verification of accepted abstract/poster is confirmed by the American Geriatrics Society.
