The Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (LebMASH) is proud to announce the winner of the “Break the Silence” competition.
To enter the competition, students in the medical field were asked to submit an essay about a specific issue related to either women’s sexual health or LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) health in Lebanon.
Submissions are reviewed and graded by LebMASH’s Executive Board. The winner receives funding to attend a medical conference anywhere in the World. This year’s choice was the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA) 31st annual conference to be held in Denver, Colorado, USA September 19-21, 2013.
The winner of our first annual “Break the Silence” competition is Mr. Antoun Khoury, a medical student at Saint Joseph University, Beirut for his submission: “Virginity & Hymenoplasty from a Socio-Medical Perspective“
LebMASH would like to congratulate Mr. Khoury and encourage more students in the medical field to start working on their submissions for next year’s competition.
