Christopher M. Guerrero, M.D., 2011 American Academy of Family Physicians Humanitarian Award Recipient

Dr. Christopher M. Guerrero was selected as the recipient of the 2011 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Humanitarian Award. The award was developed to honor extraordinary and enduring humanitarian efforts both within and beyond the borders of the United States.

Dr. Guerrero’s work through local, state, national and international communities demonstrates his sincere concern and dedication to serving others. He was also recognized by his many years of work with medical, surgical and dental missions in Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines. This is exemplifying how the physicians can use their skills to benefit others.

Dr. Guerrero was invited to accept his award on September 14, 2011 during the Congress of Delegates in Orlando, Florida, USA and to give brief remarks onstage in front of about 1,000 people. The Academy has offered Dr. Guerrero reimbursement of his travel expense and free two night’s hotel accommodations in Orlando.

The UERM Medical Center community, especially the College of Medicine, congratulates Dr. Guevarra on this great honor bestowed upon him.
