3 leaders to be honored for humanism in healthcare

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, a nonprofit organization focused on fostering humanism in healthcare, will honor three leaders June 10 at its annual gala in New York City.

This year's honorees are:

  • Afaf Ibrahim Meleis, PhD, internationally renowned nurse-researcher and medical sociologist. Dr. Meleis is professor and nursing and sociology and dean emerita at Philadelphia-based University of Pennsylvania.

  • Michael Dowling, president and CEO of New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health, New York's largest healthcare provider and private employer. He has been a strong advocate for gun violence prevention and is the co-author of a newly published book on advancements in geriatric care. 

  • Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, pediatrician, scientist, public health activist, author, and whistleblower in the Flint, Mich., water crisis. Dr. Hanna-Attisha is associate dean for public health and C. S. Mott endowed professor of public health at East Lansing-based Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

"Health is not just about what happens inside the hospital. Health is also about how hospitals engage with their communities, neighborhoods and schools," Kathleen Reeves, MD, president and CEO of the Gold Foundation, said on the foundation's website. "These three amazing individuals have seen both the vibrancy and the disparities in their communities. 

"Each honoree has used their talents, time and opportunities to bring better health to the communities they serve. Humanism in healthcare is all about the person in front of you, the caregiver beside you, and the community around you."
