Dr. LaBarge received the Dr. Robert “Toby” Wesselhoeft, III Teaching Award from the Tufts University School of Medicine in May, 2015.
The Toby Wesselhoeft Teaching Award was established in 2007, and is given annually to a family practice physician who exemplifies the tradition of physician-as-teacher, inspires by example, and shows kindness, generosity of spirit, and an uncompromising commitment to his or her patients and students.
“Toby Wesselhoeft was a pioneer of the teaching of family medicine in this region, so I am truly honored to be given an award in his name,” said Dr. LaBarge. “I am deeply passionate about the work I do and the students with whom I interact at Tufts University School of Medicine. This recognition is inspirational to me.”
