    Sixteen Nurses Honored at 2013 March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards

    Congratulations to the 2013 Nurse of the Year Winners! 

    Atlanta, Georgia, November 25, 2013 —

    The Georgia Chapter of the March of Dimes, in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, honored 16 outstanding local nurses at the 2013 Nurse of the Year Awards.

    Through Nurse of the Year Awards, the March of Dimes recognizes nurses who demonstrate exceptional patient care, compassion, and service. Whether serving as a health care provider, educator, researcher, or chapter volunteer/advisor, these nurses have played a critical role in improving the health of Georgia’s residents.

     “The winners of this year’s Nurse of the Year awards are a testament to the caliber of nursing talent that is in our state,” said Sheila Ryan, State Director for the March of Dimes. “We know that not only the winners, but the nominees and finalists alike, are truly committed to their patients and profession and are all making great strides in their respective fields.”

    The event, co-chaired by Kim Sharkey, Independent Leadership Consultant, and Linda A. Streit, Dean and Professor, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University, had over 600 attendees and raised over $160,000, making it one of the top Nurse of the Year events in the country.

    Event partners included BlueCross and BlueShield of Georgia, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Northside Hospital, Grady Health System, AmeriHealth Caritas, BDR Partners and McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., and Atlanta Magazine.

    Nurse of the Year Awards are given annually in approximately 16 award categories. More than 800 nurses were nominated in Georgia and 300 of those were selected as finalists. Award Recipients were announced at a special awards gala held on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead.

    About March of Dimes

    In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th Anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life.  Early research led to the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines that all babies still receive. Other breakthroughs include new treatments for premature infants and children with birth defects. About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefitted from life saving research and education from the March of Dimes.

    The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
