Nominations open for President’s Award for Community Service

September 9, 2014

Do you know a staff member, volunteer or physician at London Health Sciences Centre who volunteers their time in our community? Perhaps you have worked with him or her at a local non-profit organization or at a charitable event.

Consider recognizing that remarkable person with an LHSC President’s Award for Community Service.

LHSC is proud to recognize and celebrate the many staff, physicians and volunteers who devote their personal time to enriching the lives of others. Established in 2006 to honour the community service legacy of LHSC’s first president and CEO, Tony Dagnone, this award recognizes those whose volunteer achievements have made a difference to the lives of people in our local community.

Members of our community (i.e. those outside the hospital) can nominate LHSC staff, physicians and volunteers for this Community Service award. Deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 and more details on the award criteria and nomination process can be found on the President’s Award Program website.

Janet Robinson, the 2013 winner of the President’s Award for Community Service, shares what winning this award meant to her and why it’s important to nominate the remarkable people you know.

Here are the steps you will need to take! As the nominator, you need to complete the nomination form and write a short letter about why you think your colleague is a deserving winner. You also need to ask two more people to contribute a supporting letter. You can nominate staff, physicians and volunteers from LHSC, Children’s Health Foundation or London Health Sciences Foundation.

More information on the criteria for each award, and some helpful hints for a successful nomination, which includes a variety of support and mapping your letter to the award criteria, can be found on the President’s Awards Program webpage (you can find it easily through an icon on the LHSC intranet homepage). Deadline to nominate is Friday, October 24, 2014.
