Each year, a current or former staff member is honored with a Cecil Award. The Cecil Awards—which consist of a medal and $5,000—recognize outstanding, sustained contributions of staff members to the program or membership activities of the NAM. The "Cecils" are the highest distinction for a staff member.

This award is now being administered by the National Academy of Medicine.
