The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine gives out two annual awards for Humanism in Aging. The Humanism in Aging Leadership Award recognizes a prominent geriatrician who exemplifies humanism and innovation in his or her approach to improving the lives of older adults.

The Humanism in Aging Action Award is presented to the UNE COM student and/or resident who has submitted an action plan in an adjudicated venue that addresses the question: How will you apply what you learned from the Humanism in Aging Leadership Award Winner’s lecture in your future practice?”
