I'm posting this at the request of Winnie Tobin at Medically Induced Trauma Support Services:
Nominations are now being accepted for the Second Annual MITSS HOPE Award. The MITSS HOPE Award was established in 2008 to recognize people -- patients, families, healthcare providers, hospitals (or teams or departments therein), academic institutions, community health centers, grass roots organizations, EAP programs, etc. -- who exemplify the mission of MITSS: Supporting Healing and Restoring Hope to patients, families, and clinicians impacted by adverse medical events. The winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize to continue their work.
Nominations are due by September 14, 2009, and the award will be presented at the MITSS 8th Annual Dinner to be held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Thursday, November 12th, 2009, from 5:30 to 9:30 pm.
