Recognizing volunteer physicians and how they improve health care

The COPIC Humanitarian Award has honored over 50 volunteer physicians.

About the COPIC Humanitarian Award

COPIC is a mission-driven medical professional liability company that uses insurance as a tool to better medicine. We are committed to helping physicians, providers, and facilities in the communities we serve. Corporate social responsibility is a core value of COPIC, and we are pleased to expand our engagement and support of communities by giving back through the COPIC Humanitarian Award. We’re thrilled to collaborate with state associations and medical societies in offering this award.

The COPIC Humanitarian Award is presented annually to honor a physician for volunteer medical services and contributions to their community. We specifically look to recognize those individuals who unassumingly volunteer outside the spectrum of their day-to-day lives. The recipient of the award designates a $10,000 donation from COPIC to be provided to a health care-related 501(c)(3) organization within their respective state. If you know a worthy candidate, please nominate him or her for this award.

History of the Award
The COPIC Humanitarian Award was established in 2001 in memory of Harold E. “Hal” Williamson. Hal was one of the first non-physician board members of COPIC. His inspiration and his dedication to going above and beyond led to the establishment of the COPIC Medical Foundation.
