After more than 350 submissions and nearly 600 votes cast, winners have been honored for their poetic prowess in Apollo’s Flu Haiku Contest.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Nathaniel Bowditch Prize. The $5,000 prize is awarded each year by the MGH Board of Trustees to any person or team – clinical or nonclinical – who has made a significant contribution to improving quality of care at the MGH while reducing the cost of such care.
The award was established by Charles and Nancy Munger through the Alfred C. Munger Foundation to honor Nathaniel Bowditch – a pioneer in celestial navigation – and his family, who were key players in the hospital’s early days of operation.
Nomination forms can be found under “Bowditch Nomination Form 2020” in the A-Z Directory on Apollo, the MGH intranet. All nominations should be submitted by Nov. 15 to BowditchPrize@partners.org, or delivered to Andrew Warshaw, MD, chairman of the selection committee, Bulfinch 370C.
