• The Christopher Krogh Award
The award plaque is presented to a student, resident, faculty member or other individual(s) that best represent the spirit of Dr Christopher Krogh's dedication to Global Health. Dr Krogh demonstrated that careers among our own underserved and those abroad are often two sides of the same coin. The award seeks to pay tribute to Dr Krogh by honouring an individual who also demonstrates this integration of international and domestic health care.
The Chris Krogh Award was established in 1995 to honor Christopher Krogh, MD, who was killed in an airplane accident on February 24, 1994 while traveling as a physician for the Indian Health Service. Chris was a founding member of GHEC (first established as IHMEC: International Health Medical Education Consortium) and a member of the Board of Directors.
