Lee presented inaugural award from FCMSA
Alyssa Lee recently won the Florence County Medical Society and Allegiance's inaugural $2,000 cash award. The award was presented at the Francis Marion University Carter Center last week.
Lee has one more year of study at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine-Florence Regional Campus. She has grown fond of Florence through her training this past year.
In her essay chosen by the society's executive committee, Alyssa stated, “I have loved my clinical experiences both in the clinic and in the hospitals in the Florence region. Particularly, I have found that the culture and team dynamics in Florence are something that I enjoy witnessing and being a part of.”
“I anticipate that students like Alyssa will want to return to Florence for a career in medicine because of the depth of talent, innovation, and empathy that characterizes our medical community,” said Dr. Daniel Hyler, the society’s newly elected president. “Students at the Florence campus can choose any specialty for advanced residency training. At this time, only family medicine has this training in Florence but all types of specialists make Florence their home, benefitting Florence and the Pee Dee.
The Florence County Medical Society welcomes members who live or work in or near Florence County, and has four official functions each year.
Medical students can join for free. For additional information, visit www. florencemedical.org/.
