This came across the desks of Lab Medicine’s editors today and we’d like to pass it on. The folks at Hektoen International are running an essay contest.
We invite you to submit an essay of 1,500 to 2,000 words on a subject related to medicine and culture by March 1, 2014. Suggested topics include medicine and art or literature, history of medicine, ethics, music, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, etc. Clinical studies or case reports are not eligible.
We will be offering two prizes:
- The Hektoen Grand Prix, for the winner – $1,500
- The Hektoen Silver Prize, for the runner-up – $1,000
If you’d like more information, please check out the essay contest page.
