The program will present an award to an outstanding honoree in each of the four categories:

1. Hero researcher or practitioner in the field of Cancer
The hero’s pioneering work has propelled forward cancer research and patient health and treatment.

2. Hero researcher or practitioner in the field of Crohn’s Disease
The hero’s pioneering work has propelled forward Crohn’s disease research and patient health and treatment.

3. Community Hero Award
A hero whose efforts, particularly in underserved communities, have profoundly impacted the health and well-being of others on a local or global scale.

4. Healthcare Hero of Israel
A hero of Israel whose life’s work has resulted in breakthroughs in healthcare research, technology, and treatment.

The Healthcare Heroes Awards program is dedicated to the life of Richard S. Egosi, who was the Chief Legal Officer for Teva Pharmaceuticals. In addition to excellence in one of the four categories, the winning honorees will exhibit the qualities that Mr. Egosi personified and that are the hallmarks of the National Liberty Museum’s heroes, including integrity, empathy, curiosity, creativity, passion, perseverance, innovation, and courage.
