Date:4/29/2011

ROCKVILLE, Md. (April 27, 2011)A U.S. senator, an Army leader and a military surgeon are among the "Heroes of Military Medicine" to be honored May 4 by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine's Center for Public-Private Partnerships.

The awards dinner, which will take place at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., will recognize outstanding contributions by service members, veterans and civilians who are working together to ensure that America's warriors and their families receive the most innovative medical care and far-reaching support our nation can provide.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Senator Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) for his career-long dedication to advancing military medicine.

Other honorees are:

  • General Peter W. Chiarelli, vice chief of staff of the Army, for his unwavering dedication to our soldiers, especially those who have been wounded in service, and his vocal stance on the importance of addressing the invisible wounds of war.
  • Army Colonel Rocco Armonda, M.D., for providing leading-edge care on the battlefield and at home and his commitment to ensuring that wounded, ill and injured service members achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • The National Veterans Suicide Prevention Hotline for serving as a critical resource for veterans and active-duty troops in dire need of help. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline operate the hotline.

Nancy Snyderman, M.D., chief medical editor at NBC News, will host the dinner and awards ceremony. She also is associate professor of head and neck surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and co-founder of the health website BeWell.com.

Constitution supporters are Lockheed Martin and TriWest Healthcare Alliance. Independence supporters are Humana Military Healthcare Services and SAIC. For more information about the dinner, visit www.hjfcp3.org/events/military-medical-awards-dinner.
