Distinguished Service Award

In 2006, the Chapter formed an Awards Committee which was charged with the task of selecting a candidate for the newly conceived Distinguished Service Award. This award was created to honor an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to surgical patient care and the art and science of medicine in Connecticut.
