Health Foundation is soliciting nominations for the 2017 Dr. Virgilio Licona
Award to be presented at the Colorado Health Symposium on Aug. 3, 2017. The Dr.
Licona Award winner will have the opportunity to attend the full three-day Symposium
at no charge, lodging and meals included. The Award recipient will also be
offered the opportunity to designate a one-time $20,000 donation to support his
or her work or that of a nonprofit working to improve the health of Coloradans.*
*The award donation funds
may be distributed to the winner’s Colorado-based charity of choice, but “shall be used for
such charities that do not enjoy substantial support through taxation.” As a
result, the Colorado Health Foundation may only make a grant to a
publicly-funded organization if the grant supports a specific project that does
not receive most of its funding from public dollars.
Note: Applications are due on April 28 at
5 p.m. For more information about the nomination process, please contact Keri
Jones at email@example.com.
