This award is named after John (Jack) E. Trevey, M.D. who served many years in the Kentucky legislature as a state representative and state senator. Dr. Trevey was running unopposed for re-election to the Kentucky State Senate at the time of his death in 1991.

LMS President, Robert P. Granacher, Jr., M.D., presented the award to Senator Alvarado. Dr. Granacher highlighted Senator Alvarado’s many legislative achievements in advancing the health of the citizens of our state. Senator Alvarado balances his responsibilities representing his senate district while still working as a practicing physician, volunteering at a free medical clinic, and taking care of his family.

The Lexington Medical Society is the professional association of physicians in Fayette County, Kentucky. LMS is a voluntary organization founded in 1799. It is the second oldest medical society in the country. It is a component of the Kentucky Medical Association which together with other state medical associations forms the American Medical Association.
