Dr. Teresa Wurst Inducted into the Honor Society

On Friday May 26, Dr. Teresa Wurst, along with two of her colleagues, were inducted into the Hippocrates Honor Society at Aultman Health Foundation. The Hippocrates Society annually inducts physicians who exemplify the four key values of accountability, altruism, excellence, and humanism.  As a family practice physician, teaching facility member for the Aultman Residency Programs and as the Medical Director of the Hartville Migrant Medical Clinic, Dr. Wurst has daily demonstrated the four Hippocratic values.  In addition to Dr. Wurst, both Dr. Susan Mercer and Dr. Michael Hopkins were inducted at a banquet held at the Kent State University Stark Campus Conference Center.  During the presentation ceremony, Dr. Wurst was especially heralded for her 16 years of dedicated service to the Hartville Migrant Medical Clinic.
