The Chapman Chapter of the GHHS honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the chapter, or who have passed away before they could achieve membership. These are extraordinary people who exemplify or exemplified compassionate service and humanism in medicine.
One such person was Dr. David Paulus, nominated for membership for the first time in 2009, Dr. Paulus passed away before he completed the nomination and membership process. He is recognized and remembered for his commitment to service and the compassion and caring he showed toward everyone with whom he came in contact. The Chapter has given him the special recognition deserved by one whose daily work and life exemplified the humanism for which Chapman Chapter members are recognized.
