How to Nominate

Candidates can be nominated by colleagues, peers, educators, advocates, patients — anyone who can attest to the candidate’s qualifications and provide detailed background information for the selection committee’s review. Self-nominations cannot be accepted.

Nominations should be submitted for individuals who have contributed significantly in Crohn’s and colitis patient care, medical research, public service, and professional and public education.
