This award will be given annually to clinicians in private practice, emergency responders and/or a clinic/hospital who demonstrates a commitment to improving the quality of healthcare and emergency medical services for Ohioans with disabilities.
The purpose of this award is to honor a nominee judged most outstanding in meeting the criteria for the current year. The practitioner selected will be considered a symbol of all who have significantly contributed to improving the quality of medical services for people with disabilities. It is anticipated that their example will inspire others and that our public recognition will encourage healthcare professionals and emergency medical responders statewide to provide the same level of quality care to this population as that which is available to residents who are not disabled.
These awards are presented at the Annual Awards Ceremony of the Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities. Applications are accepted at any time during the year. However, the application must received by July 15, 2017 to be considered for the Annual Awards Ceremony held in September, 2017.
