HUNTINGTON -- Ten fourth-year medical students at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine were inducted Saturday, Nov. 23, into the Gold Humanism Honor Society during a ceremony at the Byrd Clinical Center Auditorium earlier this month.

The society, established in 2002, is an association of individuals and medical school chapters whose members are selected as exemplars of empathy, compassion, altruism, integrity and service in working with patients, their families and others in the field of medicine.

The students were nominated for the organization by their peers and include the following individuals: Zubair A. Ansari, Don A. Bertolotti, Caroline "Carly" L. Brady, W. Dennis Carr, Lora B. Fetty , Rebecca "Becca" M. Hayes, Joshua F. Hendrix, Sammy Hodroge, Corey A. Keeton and Douglas C. von Allman.

Additionally, four medical residents and four faculty members were inducted into the society. The residents were Amy M. Bair, M.D., surgery; Kimberly R. Becher, M.D., Department of family and community health; Susan M. Lopata, M.D., pediatrics; and Lauren M. Thompson, M.D., pediatrics.

Faculty inductees included Sean Loudin, M.D., pediatrics; Adrienne M. Mays, M.D., family and community health; Charles C. McCormick, M.D., family and community health; and Kathleen M. O'Hanlon, M.D., family and community health.
