CEO's Award for Courageous Service

Established in 2000, the ASHP CEO's Award for Courageous Service recognizes individuals or groups of individuals who go beyond the call of duty to serve patients or assist pharmacists in serving patients, such as under emergency conditions or in times of natural disaster or other catastrophic events. The award, which is conferred at the discretion of the ASHP CEO, may be presented at the ASHP Summer Meetings, ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, or other appropriate function. There is no limit to the number of awards that may be conferred each year.

2015 Recipient

U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps Pharmacists

USPHS

Members of a USPHS Commissioned Corps response team stand outside the mobile treatment center near the Liberian capital of Monrovia. Fifty-one pharmacists were deployed domestically and abroad in response to the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa.

Criteria and Eligibility

ASHP members, staff members, and others are invited, throughout the year, to suggest nominees in writing with substantiating evidence. The award is intended to recognize an individual or group of individuals for specific incidents of inspiring, unselfish service under adverse conditions. Nominations should state:

  1. How the nominee went beyond the call of duty to serve patients or assist pharmacists in serving patients, and
  2. Why the incident is of national or international significance.

Nominees may be pharmacists or non-pharmacists, regardless of practice area or ASHP membership status. Current ASHP Board members and ASHP staff are not eligible.

Nominating Instructions

The deadline for nominations is October 1, 2016. Nominations are to be transmitted electronically using the ASHP Awards Nomination Form. To reference the criteria for the award, please see the 2016 Call for Award Nominations.
