One of my very first post was about having received an award from our local medical association (2008 Young Physician of the Year Award).
This year the winner of the Atlanta Medical Association 2009 Young Physician of the Year Award is my friend and colleague, Dr. Lisa Perry-Gilkes.
Lisa, Young Physician of the Year 2008
Lisa joked upon her acceptance that she was amazed that she could win both a Young Physician of the Year Award and be recognized for 25 years in practice! (One must be under 40 or in private practice 5 years or less to qualify for the Young Physician of the Year Award)
I couldn't possibly have gotten photos of all of the lovely loc'd docs, scholarship recipients and guests at the event, but I have included photos of a few attendees below.
