The EBAA Heise Committee is accepting nominations for the 2020 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 the eye bank to Janet Ridgely at Janet@restoresight.org.
Nomination Deadline: Monday, September 9, 2019.
