Columbia, KY physician Dr. Phil Aaron, Medical Director of Dr. Phil Aaron Medical Center, 805 Burkesville ST, Columbia, KY, was honored by Health Kentucky, IN, at the group's "Twist and Bid" Gala at Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, Saturday, October 24, 2009.
Dr. Phil received the Medical Service Award, which is given annually to individuals who make a difference in the lives of Kentuckians through personal service with respect to health care.
In accepting the award, Dr. Aaron told the audience, "To paraphrase the famous German Physician Rudolph Virchow, 'we doctors are also citizens; we have the opportunity to observe and perhaps a responsibility to mitigate the effects of poverty; we should be natural advocates of the poor - we should be there for indigent patients.'"
Dr Aaron was the recipient of the Award because for his long standing support - since 1984 - of the Kentucky Physician's Care Program. "Your compassion toward helping fellow Kentuckians is commendable," Larry Forgy, President, Health Kentucky, Inc, said, in making the award. He added, "We hope you and your family enjoy this spectacular night of celebration."
The awards were made at Health Kentucky's Twist and Bid Gala, Health Kentucky's fundraising event.
Health Kentucky's vision is that all uninsured Kentuckians living in poverty have access to health care. Members of Health Kentucky arrange and promote access to health care for the poor and uninsured Kentuckians by:
Health Kentucky was created in 1984 to help low-income uninsured Kentuckians get the care they need by offering free medical services and prescription medicines through a statewide nonprofit network of health care providers, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies. More than 300,000 individuals have been helped through the organization since its inception.
