2017 Humanitarian Awards

Humanitarian Awards

Every year the Patient Safety Movement Foundation identifies the most influential advocates in patient safety and honors them with the Humanitarian Award at the annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. This award recognizes leaders who have made significant progress in eliminating preventable patient deaths so that we can reach our shared goal of zero by 2020.

This year the awards will be given in memory of two men, Beau Biden and Steven Moreau, who are no longer with us physically. Both of them had boundless passion for making the world a better place, no matter what obstacles they faced. Each of our awards will be given in their names because ZERO is not just a worthy goal but an attainable one.
