Pearl Moore "Making a Difference" Awards
Pearl Moore “Making a Difference” Awards
The Pearl Moore “Making a Difference” Awards recognize individuals and teams who go the extra mile to impact the lives of patients with cancer, their families, and their communities. Each opportunity includes a $500 award, a plaque, and travel reimbursement to attend the ONS Annual Congress.
The awards are named for Pearl Moore, the first executive director and CEO of ONS. During her widely respected tenure, she inspired and mentored countless oncology nurses to provide unbeatable care and advocate for patients and their caregivers.
Moore believed passionately that all nurses are leaders. As a result, these awards are intended to recognize emerging local and regional nurse leaders, rather than nurses who already have national recognition.
The awards are granted to ONS members who have been nominated by another member. The nomination cycle will open in the spring of 2017, with nominations due on September 30, 2017.
