2018 ISONG Founders’ Awards Nominations
Greeting ISONG Colleagues!
I am pleased to invite nominations for the 2018 ISONG Founders’ Awards. The purpose of these awards is to honor ISONG members who have demonstrated excellence in genomic nursing practice, education or research. The ISONG Founders' Awards were established in 1996 during the transition between the presidencies of Shirley Jones and Janet Williams. One of the highest forms of recognition one can receive is a tribute from one's peers. The ISONG Founders' Awards make it possible for ISONG as a professional organization to recognize members who are leaders in genetic/genomic nursing and health care.
Up to three Founders Awards may be presented each year, in Practice, Education and Research. The three fields reflect the vision of ISONG to advance genomic nursing practice, education and research worldwide. The Awards are presented at the ISONG Annual Congress, which will be held this year in Orlando, Florida USA, October 26-28, 2018.
General criteria for a nomination include the following:
