Christopher Lunsford, MD, has received the "Best Student Physiatrist Award" from the UNC Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
"The recognition was wholly unexpected and heart-felt," Lunsford said. "My choice to pursue a career in physiatry has been a direct result of my time spent with the faculty, staff and patients of UNC’s PM&R department, and for that alone I am greatly indebted."
The award recognizes a senior medical student who best demonstrates caring and compassion for persons with physical disabilities and exemplifies an interdisciplinary treatment philosophy to improve quality of life and function. The award was created in honor of Drs. Michael M. and Shine G. Lee, the parents of Michael Y. Lee, MD, MHA, department chair.
