Dr. David Williams receive Frist Humanitarian award

Emergency physician Dr. David Williams is this year’s physician winner of the Frist Award. Dr. Williams spends much time with an outreach program called Stronger Than My Father, mentoring youths who are without a positive paternal role model. 

Candidates for the Frist Humanitarian Award were nominated by coworkers, and a committee chose the winners.

The criteria for nomination for the Frist Award includes demonstrating remarkable concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and has performed extraordinary acts of kindness (not necessarily in the area of direct patient care); demonstrating a level of commitment to community service beyond the daily operation of the facility that parallels their involvement to quality patient care; and someone whose contributions may be overshadowed due to personal modesty and genuine humility.
