Mayors Committee on Life Sciences 2017 Patient Courage Award
The Mayors Committee on Life Sciences is pleased to announce the creation of a new award program designed to highlight the many inspiring patients in New Jersey. We will recognize remarkable individuals who have triumphed over adversity despite difficulties due to a serious illness or chronic disease. All New Jersey mayors (not just members of the Committee) are invited to nominate patients from their municipalities who have positively impacted the lives of others through their attitude, actions and advocacy. The Committee will showcase these patients as extraordinary examples of courage, and give them and their families a platform to inspire and educate others about their experiences.
We encourage mayors to nominate a patient for the Patient Courage Award. Each patient who receives this designation will be invited to participate in an awards ceremony. The event will include the patient, his or her family, friends and care providers, the mayor and (invited) local legislators, and representatives from We Work for Health New Jersey, the Mayors Committee on Life Sciences, and the New Jersey life science community.
Additionally, all award recipients will be invited to attend the annual Mayors Committee luncheon in October.
