We made the call...and you answered!
The response in terms of nominations for the "Building Stronger Female Physician Leaders in the MHS" award has been overwhelming with all services represented strongly. A panel convened to review each bright shining star and four individuals stood out in particular. We are proud to announce the following winners from across the MHS:
Senior MHS category: Capt. Marlene DeMaio, currently stationed at the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth
Junior Army category: Lt. Col. Jennifer C Thompson, currently stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center
Junior Navy category: Cmdr. Elizabeth M Hofmeister, currently deployed with the Combined Security Transition Command in Afghanistan
Junior Air Force category: Lt. Col. Lidia S Ilcus, currently stationed at Kirtland AFB, NM
These individuals will be given their awards at the MHS Conference being held Jan. 26-28, 2010, in Washington, D.C. Our special thanks go to each nominee and those who nominated them. We look forward to celebrating with our MHS winners in the New Year!
