RAM founder to receive CWRU's Inamori Ethics Prize
Date:4/14/2010

Stan Brock, the humanitarian who has been delivering free health care worldwide through his nonprofit organization Remote Area Medical (RAM) for 25 years, will be recognized as the recipient of the 2010 Inamori Ethics Prize, awarded by the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University.

"Stan Brock's story teaches us that if we are willing to tackle just one problem with passion and persistence, we can make a real difference. The work of RAM has improved and even saved thousands of lives and touched countless hearts."

A native of Great Britain and former host of the popular NBC television series "Wild Kingdom," Brock's experiences living and working as a cowboy and a bush pilot in the central Amazon basin of Guyana inspired him to create RAM.
