Deadline extended: Submit Tyson Award applications by new date of May 24
The Joint Commission and Kaiser Permanente have extended the deadline for accepting applications for the 2023 Bernard J. Tyson National Award for Excellence in Pursuit of Healthcare Equity. The new deadline is set to run through May 24 at 11:59 p.m. CT, and there is no cost to apply.
Bernard J. Tyson, the late CEO and chair of Kaiser Permanente, worked tirelessly to address the healthcare disparities that plague the U.S. healthcare system. Now in its third year, the award recognizes a healthcare organization for an intervention that led to a measurable and sustained reduction in at least one healthcare disparity.
The Tyson Award presents the opportunity for national recognition, as well as to share best practices with thousands of healthcare organizations across the country. Visit the Tyson Award webpage for more information and to apply.
