Emory Healthcare Recognizes 2006 Unsung Heroes
Eighty-four Emory Healthcare nursing assistive staff members have been named "2006 Unsung Heroes" for outstanding care. Each nominee was invited to attend the 2006 Rosalynn Carter Institute (RCI) Caregiver Award Celebration hosted June 13 at the Carter Presidential Center in Atlanta.

All individuals were nominated by their peers for the prestigious Rosalynn Carter Institute Caring and Competent Caregiver Award, presented each year by RCI to recognize an individual for leadership and innovation in care. A national award committee reviews thousands of nominations from across the country. "Each of these 84 caregivers contribute to the finest Emory Healthcare has to offer in nursing care," said Dr. Alice Vautier, Emory Healthcare Chief Nursing Officer. "There is no finer honor than to be selected by ones peers for excellence in his or her chosen daily work. To have so many individuals nominated for this national award is a compliment to each nominee and to the entire Emory nursing family. I am incredibly proud of their level of dedication, care and this recognition."

The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving was formed in honor of First Lady Rosalynn Carter in 1987. Through research, education, and training, the RCI promotes the mental health and well-being of individuals, families, and professional caregivers; promotes effective caregiving practices; builds public awareness of caregiving needs; and advances public and social policies that enhance caring communities. These goals are met by forming partnerships with professionals, groups, and individuals to deliver education and training programs, research and program evaluation around care needs, and policy and advocacy efforts that promote healthy individual development and increased community caregiving capacity.
