The Institute for Rural Health Research is accepting applications for the William A. Curry Excellence in Rural Health Lecture Award.
This award will honor one third- or fourth-year student at the University of Alabama School of Medicine who is or has been engaged in rural research and/or scholarly activity. Abstracts and presentations should highlight research, programs, projects and/or learned experiences that focus on rural topics, such as health disparities, health education and rural health care. The awardee must be available to present their scholarly activity at the Rural Health Conference.
The recipient will be presented a plaque and will have a special 15 minute session to present their abstract at the conference. The winner will also receive a $150 honorarium.
First, Second and Third place winners for best poster in the Student, Professional, and Community divisions will be recognized after the poster session.
