The Hartford Medical Society presented its inaugural award at the Medical and Dental Student Research Day 2018.  Members of the Society from all over the world voted on the abstracts from eligible candidates with the last vote being cast from Zanzibar to select Nia Harris as the winner. Her project was “Filling the Therapeutic Void: Creating Guidelines for Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) through Film.” HMS members judged her project as the kind of research that helps doctors serving their communities, which is the purpose of the HMS award – to help advance community medicine.
