"They are at the forefront of their fields and have taken risks to improve health care by addressing the way care is delivered. They have carried on John Eisenberg's commitment to safety and quality and have truly improved health care."

This year's awards will be presented at NQF's Annual Policy Conference: Beyond Measure - The Quality Imperative in Healthcare Reform in National Harbor, Maryland, October 14-15. The December 2009 issue of The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety will feature the achievements of each of the award recipients.
