Holzer Health System honored outstanding local high school science graduates at its 33rd Annual High School Science Awards Banquet. The scholars, their parents and school representatives were invited to attend, where each student was presented with a certificate and monetary award. A representative from each high school was also presented a check to further their efforts in their respective school’s Science Programs. The Science Awards Program encompasses high schools from Athens, Gallia, Jackson, Meigs, Lawrence, Pike and Vinton Counties in Ohio; and Mason County in West Virginia.
John Cunningham, Executive Vice President of Population Health Management, Holzer Health System, served as Master of Ceremonies and delivered the introductory remarks. Michael Canady, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Holzer Health System outlined the history of the Science Awards Program. Dr. Canady commented, “Holzer sees the Science Awards as an opportunity to give back to the community and formally recognize the achievements of our students and educational systems.” The Science Awards Program honors a student selected by the high school based on outstanding achievement in science and a desire to pursue a higher education.
The featured speaker for the program was Christopher Marazon, DO, Family Practice, Holzer Health System, and Program Director, Holzer Graduate Medical Students and Residency Program. He touched on the art and science of medicine during his comments. “The science of medicine deals with the numbers needed to make decisions. The art of medicine is the human side, working with an individual to make complex decisions. Our mission is to do the greatest amount of good, for the greatest amount of people.”
Dr. Marazon challenged all in attendance to respect the science of medicine, appreciate the human side of medicine, and to influence the future. He expressed the importance of voting for our youth and how it should be seen as a privilege to be a part of decisions in our local, state, and federal government elections. “I have learned a lot from raising my children, taking care of my parents, and giving back through our education/residency program,” stated Dr. Marazon. “Each of you should desire to be a leader and give back. We need you to make things better and push for change where it is needed.”
Through the Science Awards Program, Holzer has contributed thousands of dollars to area schools and students for the betterment of education in our region. For more information, visit www.holzer.org or call 1-855-4-HOLZER.
