Nilam Vaughn, DO Class of 2011
The winner of the 2011 Mason W. Pressly Memorial Medal for GA– PCOM sought to unite all students, faculty and administration to get behind "a social cause that would see past gender, race and socioeconomics." To that end, Ms. Vaughan organized an AIDS benefit event to help support a local non-profit agency that provides preventative education and advocacy for thousands of people in the Atlanta area.
Ms. Vaughan also demonstrated her leadership ability as vice president of the GA-PCOM Student Government Association with responsibility for all 20 clubs on campus, and as rotation group leader, serving as a liaison between her classmates, Osteopathic Institute of the South and GA-PCOM administrators.
Ms. Vaughan is excited about starting an emergency medicine residency at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., where she’ll have the opportunity to be trained as a flight physician on medical evacuation helicopters.
Our congratulations to Nilam Vaughan, DO Class of 2011.
