Carolyn Boone Lewis Living the Vision Award

The Carolyn Boone Lewis Living the Vision Awards

The Carolyn Boone Lewis Living the Vision Awards are presented to organizations and individuals living AHA’s vision of “a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health.” Established in 1996, the award honors organizations and individuals effectively carrying out AHA’s vision of “a society of healthy communities, where all individuals reach their highest potential for health.”

An important element of the award is that a hospital must be recognized as a leader and nominated by others in the health care field: a Carolyn Boone Lewis Living the Vision recipient cannot be nominated by the hospital or those affiliated with the hospital.

Up to four The Carolyn Boone Lewis Living the Vision Awards may be presented each year and nominations are accepted at any time from all who are part of the health care or association field.
