Moses ben Maimon was a celebrated 12th-century physician, Jewish scholar, and philosopher whose contributions to health and wellness are still felt today. In recognition of his work, it is essential to establish an award that honors individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to promoting family wellness, mental health, and overall health.
The Maimonides Award in Health and Wellness recognizes healthcare professionals, support groups, and others who have significantly improved people’s health and well-being. Candidates for the award are evaluated based on their impact in the department and society.
By establishing the Maimonides Award in Health and Wellness, we can honor his legacy and encourage future generations to continue promoting family, mental health, and overall health. This award is a testament to the enduring importance of health and wellness in modern society and will help advance the field of health and wellness for years to come.
