 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 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 medical 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.
