2018 Wallis Prize for Women's Health Research Awarded at Medicine Grand Rounds

The Dr. Lila A. and Benedict Wallis Prize for Women’s Health Research was founded in 2000 by Dr. Lila A. Wallis in honor of her late husband Dr. Benedict Wallis, to encourage outstanding research in women’s health. This award is funded by the Wallis Prize Fund with a prize of $3,000 to the winner and $1,500 to the runner up. This year, the judges decided on joint winners who will split the total prize monies.
