The Lexington Medial Society Presents its Highest Award to Steven Stack, M.D.
For Calm and Reassuring Guidance that Saved Lives During the Covid-19 Pandemic

LEXINGTON, Ky.­ Steven Stack, M.D., Commissioner for Public Health for our Commonwealth of Kentucky, was presented the Jack Trevey Award for Community Service by Khalil Rahman, M.D., Lexington Medical Society (LMS) President, on November 10, 2022, at the LMS Dinner Meeting at the Signature Club. This award is the Society’s highest honor and is not presented every year but only when a worthy recipient is selected. It is named after Dr. Jack Trevey, who was a true leader in our Medical Society and our community, as well as a servant of all Kentucky as a member of the State House of Representatives and the State Senate.

Dr. Rahman, during the award presentation, stated, “It is my privilege to present this award to Dr. Steven Stack for his leadership in helping guide our state through the covid-19 pandemic. Dr. Stack was no stranger to members of the society before the pandemic, having served as the President of the American Medical Association, and now is no stranger to our fellow citizens due to his, for many months, nearly daily televised pandemic updates. I am sure Dr. Stack, through his long career as an emergency physician, saved many lives. There is no doubt he saved many times that through his guidance to our citizens and support for our healthcare system throughout the pandemic…Through it all he remained a calm, reassuring presence to our citizens and strong supporter for his colleagues.”
