A week after clinching The 2016 Young Investigator Award, my brother collected two new awards this week: The Humanitas award for being a good human and another award for being an awesome clinician.
He dedicated the Humanitas award to our beloved father, here’s what he had to say:
It was a great honor today to be selected by the MD Anderson Cancer Center Fellowship Program to receive the Humanitas award…thank you to my cofellows (notably John French for the nomination), faculty and mentors for this selection…this award is based on Cicero’s Humanitas definition as a good human being…I dedicate this award to my father Ibrahim Mitri (Bob) who unexpectedly left us way too soon a few weeks ago…if there ever was anyone who loved and cared about people…anyone whom everyone loved…a truly good human being, that was you Dad…thank you for continuing to lead by example..this one’s for you..
Three awards in less than a month and he’s only getting started. Congrats bro!
