The Physician Peer Award was presented to Dr. John Krodel.

This year a doctor was also honored with the Heart of Gold award. This award is in honor of the life and service of the late Dr. Harold Belknap, Jr. The Heart of Gold Award was given to Dr. Gerald McCullough for his 46 years of dedicated service. He exemplifies the standards Dr. Belknap stood for which include: promoting community pride, developing the next generation of leaders and healthcare providers, and volunteering services to those in need.
