Training Rural Doctors for Rural People

Monato $2,500 Rural Health Essay Prize

The Essay Prize, established in 1993, is open to anyone who has been a student at the University of Wisconsin (UW) within the preceding year (all campuses, programs, undergraduate, graduate, resident, fellows, part‐time, and non‐degree included). The competition was established to honor the memory of Hermes Monato, Jr., a December 1990 graduate, as well as to highlight the importance of rural health. Hermes worked at the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative (RWHC) for only a few years but his infectious spirit and creative mind left rural health an enduring legacy. The writer of the winning essay will receive a check for $2,500.00.
