2018 Cura Personalis Award

Eleventh Annual GUMC Convocation: Cura Personalis Award

The Catholic, Jesuit principle of cura personalis, which means “care of the whole person,” suggests individualized attention to the needs of others, distinct respect for unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for singular gifts and insights. This is the founding principle of Georgetown University Medical Center, and has special resonance for the scientific and educational missions of the university.

Every year at the Annual GUMC Convocation, the Cura Personalis Award is bestowed upon a health professional who has made outstanding contributions to human health guided by compassion and service.

The recipient of the 2018 Cura Personalis Award will be announced soon.
