MED STUDENT'S WORK EARNS ANSON JONES AWARD
While in Austin, Dr. King gave medical student Rachel Pearson her Anson Jones, MD, Award. Rachel won first place in the Physician Excellence in Reporting category for “Texas’ Other Death Penalty,” which appeared in The Texas Observer. Said one of the judges about her article: “Your first-hand report about providing health care at a free clinic in Galveston was a dramatic inside account of the shortcomings of emergency care for the poor that the public rarely gets to see.” Another judge added, “The article showed a side of lack of health care access that most people don’t see — and challenged medical students to see they can make a difference.” Rachel is an MD/PhD candidate at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Congratulations!
