Moreton Award Nominations Are Now Being Accepted

February 13, 2024 // Southern Medical Association

Since 1906 the Southern Medical Association (SMA) has been dedicated to improving the lives of patients and we encourage you to nominate a physician colleague in the medical profession who is most worthy of recognition for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of original research, the Dr. Robert D. &  Mrs. Alma W. Moreton Original Research Award and Commemorative Lectureship. 

Established in 1961, this award recognizes those with original research in the field of clinical medicine or the basic sciences as applied to medicine. The physician chosen for this award will address a topic germane to the challenges facing medical professionals seeking to improve the health of individuals or the population within SMA’s geographic territory. Furthermore, the topic will be of interest to the broad range of medical specialties representing the SMA membership.

We truly believe that throughout your career, you have encountered many exemplary physicians. Please take a moment to complete the online nomination form by June 30, 2024, for someone who qualifies for this prestigious award. Only through your nomination will SMA be able to properly recognize a deserving physician whose hard work and dedication have improved the lives of so many. 

Please note that you do not need to be an SMA member to nominate someone, nor does the nominee need to be an SMA member. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Price.

Thank you for helping SMA recognize those who represent the highest professional standards in medicine.
