2. Hero researcher or practitioner in the field of Crohn’s Disease

This year, we are expanding the Community Hero Award and opening it to all heroes whose efforts, particularly in COVID-19 units and underserved communities, have profoundly impacted the health and well-being of others on a local or global scale. This includes, but is not limited to, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, hospital workers, medical students, and R&D employees working tirelessly to save lives and lead us towards a cure during this time of crisis.

4. Healthcare Hero of Israel

This Awards program is made possible thanks to generous support from Teva Pharmaceuticals. It is dedicated to the life of Richard S. Egosi.

Mr. Egosi was the Executive Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, and Company Secretary for Teva Pharmaceuticals. He was also a member of the Teva Executive Committee and oversaw the legal, compliance, intellectual property, and public policy functions for Teva. His 21-year career with the company made a lasting impact on the organization, his colleagues, and the world.

This international award was developed to honor Mr. Egosi in a manner that reflects and pays tribute to his life, leadership, and legacy. 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
