Local physician Dr. Gerald Harmon, who serves on the national board of trustees of the American Medical Association and is the board liaison to the AMA minority affairs section, recently presented three MUSC students with minority scholar awards from the AMA.
The students are Bethany Carlos, Kendrick Kennedy and Denise Kimbrough.
