Standing Out in Our Field started in 2014, the brain child of Chef Steven Nakano, MD ('15), as a way to raise necessary funds to grow our medical student scholarship endowment and involve the community in the effort. Since the inaugural event, it's become an annual tradition hosted by the School of Medicine and supported by the larger Huntington community. Standing Out in Our Field attracts more than 500 guests under a tent to the picturesque farm of Dr. Bobby ('97) and Eric Hardin-Miller nestled in the hills of Proctorville, Ohio. Our medical students serve as wait staff, serving a three-course meal that ties in seamlessly with the event's theme prepared by chefs Kevin Fowler and Don Sallada of Cabell Huntington Hospital. We've taken guests on an epicurean journey to Brazil, Jamaica and the Great American Ball Park. No matter the “destination,” it’s a fun filled evening with friends, food and dancing for a worthy cause.
Most importantly, we've invested more than $650,000 into students scholarships thanks to our generous donors and the hard work of our volunteers!
