HEROES IN ACTION: HONORING OUTSTANDING NURSES, PHYSICIANS, AND MATERNAL & INFANT HEALTH PROVIDERS
Join us at the newly reimagined HEROES IN ACTION (formerly March of Dimes Ohio Nurse of the Year Awards), as we honor outstanding nurses, physicians, and maternal & infant health providers across our state!
Whether serving as health care provider, educator, or researcher, you all play a critical role in advancing the mission of the March of Dimes: leading the fight for the health of all moms and babies.
From August 10, 2023 – October 27, 2023, colleagues, supervisors, friends, family, patients and instructors will nominate outstanding healthcare heroes in 10 diverse categories with 17 winners. This year we have included Health Equity Leadership, Lifetime Achievement, as well as expanding the categories to include Neonatologists and others that have a profound impact on maternal & infant health. You can download a list of these options in the section below.
All official nominees will be invited to attend the virtual Awards on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. where the winners will be announced.
*We are grateful to our sponsors, nominees, finalists, and winners, for helping to raise money for our mission--to lead the fight for the health of all moms and babies! Your support of March of Dimes will help fund programs like:
- Free virtual/in-person NICU support programs for families
- Virtual prenatal programs for moms-to-be
- Health equity for moms & babies, addressing racial disparities in maternal/child health
- COVID-19 interventions and support for moms and babies
- Educational programs for families including live Facebook panel discussions
- Necessary supplies for expectant mother, including blood pressure cuffs and masks
