The Lexington Medial Society Presents its Highest Honor
David Bensema, MD presented the Jack Trevey Award for Community Service

LEXINGTON, KY.­ David Bensema, MD was presented the Jack Trevey Award for Community Service, the Lexington Medical Society’s highest honor, by Lee Dossett, MD, LMS President, on May 16th, 2023, at the LMS Dinner Meeting at the Signature Club. Dr. Bensema is a past Kentucky Medical Association and LMS President, American Medical Association delegate, and a mentor to a generation of physicians and medical students.

The Jack Trevey Award for Community Service is the Lexington Medical Society’s highest award.  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 of Kentucky as a member of the State House of Representatives and the State Senate.  The Trevey Award is given to member physicians who demonstrate outstanding service to the community through volunteerism and/or service in state or local government.  This award is not given out every year; it is only given when an individual has served their community in an exceptional manner.

Dr. Dossett, during this presentation comments, stated, “This award is presented tonight to honor Dr. Bensema’s incredible body of work in service to improve the practice of medicine for his state, community, colleagues, and patients. My guess is that almost everyone here has had a meaningful, positive, encounter with him. What immediately strikes you when you have such an encounter is, all of a sudden, his entire focus is on you, as an individual human being. David Bensema is a person who establishes trust through his integrity, character, and competence. We, the physicians of the Lexington Medical Society, are proud of Dr. David Bensema for his leadership, service, and mentorship to a generation of current and future physicians. It is an honor and a privilege to present the 2023 Jack Trevey Award for Community Service to Dr. David Bensema.” 

The Lexington Medical Society is a non-profit 501(c) (6) organization that supports physician members to improve the practice of medicine and the health of the community. The LMS, established in 1799, is one of the oldest medical societies in the country. Learn more about the LMS and its programs at
