Nominees must be nominated by a peer and must be a member of the Wisconsin Medical Society. In addition to an engraved award presented at the Wisconsin Medical Society’s Annual Meeting, the Foundation will make a contribution to a charitable organization, selected by Dr. Kapoor, in his honor. Dr. Kapoor has chosen to make this contribution to the Beloit Health System foundation.
