On the eve of 24th May, the award established at Medical University - Varna in the name of Dr. Vasil Hristov for the development of young scientists was presented for the fourth year in a row. This year the awards have been presented to young physicians from University Hospital "St. Marina"- Varna, which at the time of the pandemic are in the forefront in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Dr. Monika Agapova from the Adult Emergency Department, Dr. Iliyan Todorov from the Department of Infectious Diseases and Dr. Denis Niyazi from the Virology Laboratory at the Varna University Hospital were honoured with the award.

This award is usually given to young scientists in the field of Neuroscience. However, this year is different. In times of crisis, such as the current pandemic, the society does not need separation, but unification around personalities who perform good deeds," said Prof. Dr. Hristo Kozhuharov, Dr. Vasil Hristov's son, who presented the awards to the young physicians from UMHAT "St. Marina"- Varna during a meeting of the Consultative Board.
