The Benavides Memorial Award was established in 1997 in memory of the Tarrant County Medical Society’s late executive director Leo Benavides. He coordinated staff, communications and programs linking 2,000 physician and medical students. He also created healthcare coalitions that established emergency medical service systems and started a journalistic intern program at the Medical Society.

Applications for the award are accepted from all fourth-year students with membership in the Texas Medical Association, regardless of grade point average or class standing.

Dr. Gomez-Meade, a native of Brownsville, earned a bachelor of science degree in pre-medicine and Spanish literature from the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Ind. and a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from TCOM. He will complete his residency in family practice at Broward General Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The senior awards reception was held May 19 at the Fort Worth Club.
