The Sawyer Award is a new award to trainees to:
1) provide the means for trainees to attend the Annual Meeting,
2) be recognized for their outstanding abstract submission, and
3) network with members of the society with particular interest in mentoring.
Named in recognition of Past-President Robert Sawyer’s substantial and long-lasting commitment to mentoring surgical trainees in surgical infections research, this award reflects a core value of the SIS – the mentorship of future leaders in surgical infectious disease research.
