The National Liberty Museum ‘s Healthcare Heroes Awards, presented by Teva Pharmaceuticals, is inspired by and dedicated to the life of Richard S. Egosi. The international awards recognize inspirational heroes in healthcare research and treatment whose accomplishments have profoundly benefitted their patients, their field, and the global community.
Each year, the winners of this distinguished honor will become a part of a new Healthcare Heroes Awards exhibit at the National Liberty Museum. The awardees’ accomplishments and profiles will be showcased in the interactive exhibit to be experienced each year by the Museum’s tens of thousands of visitors, many of whom are children and young people. The Awardees’ stories will inspire visitors to think about how they can use their own time, talents, and resources to make a positive difference in the lives of others. The Healthcare Heroes honorees and their inspirational achievements will also be viewable on the National Liberty Museum website and accessible from anywhere in the world.
