Our friends at the Institute for Diversity in Health Management (part of the American Hospital Association) are still accepting applications for the 2017 Equity of Care Award, but time is running out. The deadline is March 15.


This prestigious award is presented annually to hospitals and health systems that demonstrate a level of success in reducing health care disparities, ensuring access to equitable care and advancing diversity and inclusion practices. The award will be presented at this year's American Hospital Association-Health Forum Leadership Summit, July 27-29, 2017.


To apply: Please click here to access the online application. In addition to completing the application, you may also submit supplemental materials that further demonstrate your work in health equity. Documents such as dashboards, score cards, reports, etc. can be emailed to equityofcare@aha.org after you have submitted your online application.


If you choose to email supplements, please type '2017 EOC Award Submission' in the subject line. It is important to know that only those submissions using the online application will be accepted for review.


Submission deadline: Please submit the online application and optional supplements by 11:45 p.m. CT on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
