Local physician wins Humaneness in Medicine Award from Lehigh County Medical Society

Gabriela Firak DO, a third-year internal medicine resident with the Lehigh Valley Health Network, was named the recipient of the 2018 Humaneness in Medicine Award, presented by the Lehigh County Medical Society.

This award is presented to a Lehigh County medical resident or fellow who has best displayed the ideals of outstanding compassion in the delivery of care, respect for patients, their families, and healthcare colleagues, as well as demonstrated clinical excellence.

Dr. Firak was nominated for the award by Brian Costello DO, program director of the traditional rotating osteopathic internship, at Lehigh Valley Health Network.

Dr. Costello described Dr. Firak as a kind, thoughtful, and prepared resident. β€œShe is a strong, capable, and consistent leader of her medical teams across the continuum of inpatient medicine, ambulatory practice, critical care, and specialty rotations,” he says.

Lehigh County Medical Society (LCMS) presents the award annually. Located in Allentown, LCMS represents physicians of all specialties on local issues. In coordination with the Pennsylvania Medical Society, LCMS also works to address health issues at the state capitol.
