Ben Kean Medal

The Ben Kean Medal is awarded to a clinician or educator whose dedication to clinical tropical medicine and impact on the training of students, fellows and/or practitioners of tropical medicine is in keeping with the tradition established by Dr. Kean.

The medal was first awarded in 1994 to Mrs. Ben Kean (Collette), and the first Society member recipient was Franklin A. Neva in 1995.
