Unity Provider Honored with Prestigious Teaching Award
Stefanie King, M.D., a provider at Unity Family Medicine at Parkway and a part-time instructor at Highland Family Medicine with the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, is among a select group of physicians to receive a 2012 Pfizer Teacher Development Award.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation recognized Dr. King with this award for her commitment to education in the field of family medicine, her scholastic achievement and leadership qualities.
Pfizer Teacher Development Awards spotlight those in active practice who give of themselves to teach, mentor and inspire residents and students. Each nomination is reviewed and scored by a panel appointed by the AAFP Foundation.
The award provides funding for each recipient to attend an activity of choice to further their professional development and teaching skills. This program is supported by a grant from Pfizer Inc.
Dr. King will be recognized for this achievement during the next meeting for the Rochester Chapter of the New York State Academy of Family Physicians at 6 p.m on. Thursday, October 18.
