Dr. Benjamin Drapcho and Dr Deandrea King were inducted into the Robert R. Russell, MD ’46 Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) on April 29, 2019.

The Society currently has more than 24,000 members in training and practice. The power of the Society lies in bringing together like-minded individuals to sustain their own humanism and to inspire and nurture humanism in others. GHHS honors medical students, residents, fellows, role-model physician teachers and others who demonstrate excellence in humanistic clinical care, leadership, compassion and dedication to service.
