Every year the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) identifies the most influential advocates in patient safety and honors them with the Humanitarian Award at the annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. This award recognizes leaders who have made significant progress in eliminating preventable patient deaths so that the PSMF can reach its shared goal of ZERO preventable deaths.

The awards are given in memory of two men, Beau Biden and Steven Moreau, who are no longer with us physically. Both of them had boundless passion for making the world a better place, no matter what obstacles they faced. Each of the awards will be given in their names because ZERO is not just a worthy goal but an attainable one.

All nominations must be submitted by December 15, 2019.
