Joyce Binder Memorial Award 2017

This year at the annual conference in September we announced the winner of the second “Joyce Binder Memorial Award.” This is awarded to an outstanding NYS ID/DD member who has made a significant contribution to advancing the practice of supporting individuals with ID/DD through the demonstrated attributes of caring/compassionate, advocacy, mentoring, leadership, dedication, education/research. We accept nominee applications for a nurse who is currently an active member of the NYS ID/DD nursing association. 

The committee (Carol Krueger and Lisa McHugh) reviewed the nominees and chose Karen Bazan. Karen was notified that she had won but was unable to attend the conference. The award will be presented to her at a zone meeting. Congratulations Karen!
