The Maurice Wood Award for Lifetime Contribution to Primary Care Research is given annually to honor a researcher who has made outstanding contributions to primary care research over the course of a lifetime. Scientists from all nations, working in all professional fields and scientific disciplines, are eligible to receive the Wood Award, which is presented at the Annual Meeting of the North American Primary Care Research Group. The award is named in honor of Maurice Wood, a pioneer in primary care research and a founder of NAPCRG.
