Those who work in-the-trenches as well as supervisors, directors and in leadership roles. The People Awards will recognize professionals who share their knowledge and skills to address challenges and meet the needs of their team, their patients and patients' families. From the payer side to the provider side to those who work as independent practitioners, the broad scope of award categories provides an opportunity for all professionals to highlight the important work they do.
