The EBAA Heise Committee is accepting nominations for the 2018 Leonard Heise Award. The Leonard Heise Award is presented to a non-physician eye banker recognized for his/her outstanding devotion to the EBAA’s mission and development, and for exemplifying the precepts of Leonard Heise, a major contributor to the fight against corneal blindness and one of the EBAA’s founders.
Nominations for the award must meet the following requirements:
Since nominees are not always well known to members of the Heise Committee, decisions may be made based on contributions as detailed in the material submitted. Comprehensive information that outlines a nominee’s contributions is helpful. All nominations will be reviewed by the Heise Committee, made up of previous Heise Awardees.
To re-nominate an individual whom you nominated in the past, please send an updated letter of support for that individual from the Executive Director, Medical Director or Board President of his/her eye bank to Stacey Gardner at Stacey@restoresight.org.
Nomination Deadline: Monday, October 2, 2017.
