Health Care Professional of the Year Starfish Award
Loren Eiseley's famous essay, "The Star Thrower," tells the story of a man who walks along the beach throwing starfish, one by one, back into the ocean. A bystander — observing the miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish washed ashore — tells the man he can’t possibly make a difference to all the starfish. As the man picks up another starfish and throws it back to sea, he replies, “I made a difference to that one.”
Nominate a neurologist, physician, nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, family counselor or any health care professional who goes above and beyond in making a difference for people living with multiple sclerosis for the Health Care Professional of the Year Starfish Award. Nominees will be judged on their dedication to the MS movement, passion for providing personalized care to people affected by MS, and innovation in disease management and treatment.
