The Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (LebMASH) announced today the results of its 3rd annual Break the Silence student competition.
Every year, LebMASH offers students an opportunity to win full sponsorship to attend an international medical conference. To win this grant, students compete by submitting a review-of-literature or research paper about sexual health or health of sexual minorities in Lebanon.
The winner is awarded 1,500 USD to cover their transportation and accommodation. LebMASH has been partnering with GLMA’s annual conference to waive the conference registration fee.
Students are expected to bring back to their schools and peers what they learned abroad. They are encouraged to present their experience and to also publish it online. LebMASH board members will mentor the winner, as well as interested non-winning participants, to publish their papers in peer-reviewed medical journals.
It is with great pleasure we announce that Mr. Ahmad Abu Mohammad has been selected as the winner of BTS 2015 competition for his submission “The need for mental health research within the LGBT community in Lebanon.”
Mr. Abu Mohammad will join LebMASH board members at GLMA’s 33rd annual conference in Portland, USA from Sept. 24 to 26 2015. Congratulations and “Alf Mabrouk”
