The Andy Hyman Award for Advocacy is presented each year to an outstanding advocacy grantee who embodies a commitment to principled action, leadership to advance social change, and dedication to making progress in policy and practice despite challenging political environments. GIH invites its Funding Partners to nominate individuals for the 2022 award.
Nominators should submit:
- A nomination form, which provides complete contact information for the nominee, the nominator, and two individuals from an entity other than the nominator’s foundation, who support the nomination and are willing to be contacted by the selection committee.
- Answers to the nomination questions, which provide background information on the nominee and speak to the nominee’s achievements and principal contributions to the field of health advocacy. (See the Andy Hyman award brochure for more information.)
- No more than three attachments that illustrate the nominee’s achievements, which may include articles authored by the nominee, publications produced under the nominee’s leadership, and media articles.
Nominations must be received by Friday, December 3. Questions should be sent to GIH Program Director Ann McMillan.
The Andy Hyman Award for Advocacy will be presented at the 2022 GIH Annual Conference on Health Philanthropy, which is slated to be held June 27-29, 2022 in Miami, Florida, but could become a virtual or hybrid event based on COVID-19 developments.
