Honoring the Heroes

As we prepare to turn the page on another successful calendar year at BizTimes Media, it is a special thrill to end our annual programming lineup with our Health Care Heroes Awards program.

As a live event, the Health Care Heroes breakfast is a highlight of the holiday season for our company. That’s because we get to shine our spotlight on people and organizations that are making a positive difference in the community on the front lines of health care.

They are “heroes” in every sense of the word:

  • They are finding treatments and cures for sick children.
  • They are developing new medical technologies, treatments and devices.
  • They are providing nutritional advice.
  • They are treating people with mental illness.
  • They are providing dental care.
  • They are promoting wellness.
  • They are caring for the elderly.
  • They are tending to people with developmental disabilities.
  • They are volunteering to serve others.

It is an honor to give these amazing folks a tip of the cap in the spirit of the season. Please take a few moments to read their stories here. And should you cross their paths, be sure to give them a “thank you” for their service. They deserve it!
