Awards, Honors, Achievements

Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy student pharmacist Matthew Murphy is among a select group chosen to participate in the prestigious American Association of College of Pharmacy Walmart Scholars Program for 2018. Murphy, of Nashville, is a third-year student pharmacist on track to complete his Doctor of Pharmacy degree in May 2019. He is one of 85 students chosen from more than 14,000 student pharmacists and will attend the AACP Annual Meeting later this month in Boston.

In late June, HCA presented the HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction to recipients at a ceremony in Nashville. The Frist Humanitarian Award, which recognizes individuals who demonstrate an unrivaled commitment to caring and serve as an inspiration to colleagues, is annually presented to an employee, volunteer and physician. This year's physician award was presented to Sami Ismail, MD, a neonatologist at TriStar Centennial Medical Center. Ismail, who has worked with TriStar Centennial for 29 years, founded a neonatal intensive care unit in Aleppo, Syria where he continues to assist with training and donation of medical equipment and supplies. Locally, he provides support for NICU families through the March of Dimes and Parents Reaching Out, a support group for parents of hospitalized babies.

In addition, two other local professionals were named HCA Innovators Award winners. Aaron Montlary, director of clinical development and innovation for HCA Healthcare IT&S, was recognized for service excellence; and Donna Harrell, RD, LDN, CNSC, division food and nutrition analyst and clinician nutrition lead for HealthTrust, was honored for her work in quality and patient safety.

Last month, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and MP&F Strategic Communications were awarded Best of Silver Anvil at the Public Relations Society of America's annual awards ceremony in New York City for their efforts to combat Tennessee's opioid epidemic through the "Don't Be An Accidental Drug Dealer" public education campaign.
