The objective is to demonstrate the universal and urgent need for more trained, helpful health care workers on the frontlines. By some estimates, the world is short more than 5 million health care workers including one million frontline health care workers. Existing health care workers are often overworked and under-appreciated. The awards seek to remind the public that people everywhere depend on health care workers every day.
Everyone has gone to a clinic, hospital or doctor’s office and had an amazing experience with a health care worker. If you know someone who has provided such an experience, consider nominating them for the recognition they deserve.
