By Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Air Force officials recently released the winners of the 2012 Air Mobility Command Medical Service Awards and the 628th Medical Group walked away with two individual awards.

Major Daniel Michel, 628th Medical Operations Squadron, was named the Biomedical Clinician Category I Officer of the Year, Field-Grade Officer category; and Lt. Col. Monica Lovasz, 628th MDOS, won the Clinical Excellence Award, Field-Grade Officer category.

"I could not agree with Gen. Selva [Air Mobility commander] more, that these Mental Health professionals are definitely the 'best of the best'," said Col. Judith Hughes, 628th Medical Group commander. "Lt. Col. Lovasz and Maj. Michel have done an amazing job leading our mental health team in all their efforts to support and engage our base community as well as excelling in challenging deployments during the last year. I am very proud of these dedicated clinicians and extremely glad they are part of our outstanding Medical Group team!"

AMC winners will go on to compete at the Air Force-Level.
