ISONG Founders Awards
The purpose of the ISONG Founders awards, established in 1996, is to honor individual ISONG members who have demonstrated excellence in genomic nursing education, research or service. ISONG members have the opportunity each year to nominate another ISONG member for a Founders Award. One of the highest forms of recognition one can receive is a tribute from one's peers. The ISONG Founders' Awards make it possible for ISONG as a professional organization to recognize members who have served ISONG and are leaders in genetic/genomic nursing and health care.
Up to three Founders Awards may be presented each year, in Practice, Education and Research. The three fields reflect the vision of ISONG to advance genomic nursing practice, education and research worldwide.
