2012 scholar awards

The JACK’s Neonatology Scholar Awards identify faculty and peers who best exemplify the attributes of humanism and professionalism in medicine.

The American Board of Pediatrics defines professionalism as one who “aspires to altruism, accountability, excellence, duty, service, honor, integrity and respect for others.”
