Do you know a medical professional who goes the extra mile? Nominate that individual for the Air Link "Guiding Light" and "Impact" awards.
The Guiding Light and Impact Awards were established in honor of Peter Meyer, MD, FPC, the Air Link Medical Director and a Regional West Physicians Clinic emergency medicine physician. Meyer was named the 2011 Medical Director of the Year by the International Air Medical Physicians Association. He was recognized for his dedication to improving patient care and embodying characteristics of giving, support, and empowerment each and every day.
The Guiding Light and Impact awards were established to recognize other men and women who give unselfishly of themselves to further advancements in patient care, both in the pre-hospital and hospital environments.
Air Link Guiding Light and Impact award winners will be presented $1,000 payable to his or her respective agency for the purpose of education, training, or the purchase of equipment for education/training purposes.
Last year's recipient of the Air Link Impact award was Jack Galt, a five- year veteran of the Crawford Volunteer Fire and Rescue department, Crawford, Neb. The winner of the Air Link Guiding Light award was Tom Hoskins, MD, trauma program director of Lusk/Niobrara Ambulance Service in Lusk, Wyo.
