Creating a Ripple Effect

The Sherman Prize recognizes and rewards leading individuals who go above and beyond to make exceptional, pioneering contributions and inspire tomorrow’s innovators in the fight to overcome Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, also known as the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs).

This annual Prize is the first of its kind to reward healthcare providers, medical researchers, educators and public health advocates for blazing new trails in the areas of IBD patient care, medical research, public service, and professional and public education.

While great progress has been made in fighting IBD, many challenges remain. We believe that by consistently elevating great work and supporting future efforts, we can create a ripple effect — spreading awareness, innovation and inspiration — that fosters greater advances in the field, and signals to the philanthropic and medical communities that these diseases are high priorities and worthy of significant investment.

We’re proud to be a part of a movement that inspires talented men and women who are working tirelessly on new treatments, approaches to serving patients, and the science that could lead to a cure.

By recognizing achievement, we inspire excellence.
