For the last 34 years, Moffitt Cancer Center has awarded its team members for their passion and dedication to the cancer center. This award, known as the H. Lee Moffitt Award of Excellence, is given to team members who have a positive effect on others, who exemplify a true collaborative spirit and who are kind and supportive. This award is an example of someone who’s living the Moffitt mission.
The Award of Excellence is geared to highlight all Moffitt team members, whether they work directly with patients or not. It shows that everybody contributes to helping our patients during their cancer journey, as well as the cancer center’s mission.
Award recipients are nominated by their colleagues, making the award one of significance. There are two top awardees, selected from a research and non-research field within Moffitt, followed by five honorable mentions.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 Award of Excellence!
