The Jerome Foundation and United Memorial Medical Center Foundation are jointly seeking nominations for the 32nd annual Health and Humanitarian Award of Genesee County. Nominations should be submitted on or before Sept. 6.
The award recognizes outstanding men and women whose volunteer efforts have improved the physical, emotional or spiritual well-being of the greater Genesee County area.
“We are fortunate to have many caring and committed volunteers devoted to the sick or to those in need, and helping to build a stronger, healthier community for all of us,” said Justin Calarco-Smith, president of The Jerome Foundation.
He noted the accomplishments of John Dwyer, the 2015 Health and Humanitarian Award winner. For more than 60 years Mr. Dwyer has given his support and leadership to numerous organizations involved in health care, job creation, education and charitable causes.
Nomination forms are available from UMMC Foundation Office at 127 North St., or by calling 585-344-5301, or online at www.ummc.org.
Organizations or individuals may nominate candidates. Consideration will be given to actual accomplishments achieved through volunteer service and subsequent improvements to quality of life.
The 2016 award winner will be honored at a luncheon on Friday, Nov. 4, at Terry Hills Restaurant.
