In 2017, NANT introduced two peer-nominated awards to be given annually at the NANT Conference – Excellence in Research and Excellence in Clinical Practice.
2018 Recipients included:
Excellence in Clinical Practice: Holly M. Schifsky, OTR/L, NTMTC, CBIS, CNT University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital Minneapolis, Minnesota
Excellence in Research: Associate Professor Alicia Spittle BPhysio, MPhysio, PhD Melbourne, Australia
Why are we committed to this award process?
1. For decades, your efforts have gone largely unnoticed while your contributions to neonatal therapy and neonatal care have been, and continue to be, considerable. We believe you should be recognized and celebrated.
2. Research and clinical practice are the cornerstones of neonatal therapy. We cannot perform either well without the other. We aim to honor those that have excelled in these areas (with a collaborative spirit) while inspiring future generations of neonatal therapists to do the same.
3. Excellence is one of NANT’s Core Values. This is how we define it:
Please consider nominating one (or more) of your colleagues in honor of their dedication to excellence.
