Each year, AHA honors five hospitals and health systems with the Dick Davidson NOVA Award. The award recognizes the collaborative work of hospitals and community organizations to improve the health status of individuals and communities through health care, economic or social initiatives. The 2020 honors are Vail Health, Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine, Baltimore City Hospitals, Carilion Clinic and Memorial Healthcare System. In this session we’ll discuss how program leaders identified their community’s need and developed and implemented their program.  

The panelist also will address:  

  • Forming and maintaining collaborative relationships with community organizations 
  • Determining the scope of the initiative and accessing resources 
  • Defining success and measuring impact 
  • Managing the challenge of COVID-19
