'Thank You' to all IBD professionals in the wake of a global pandemic

In these challenging times, we’re reminded of the sacrifices made by healthcare providers on the front lines. At the Sherman Prize, we are ever grateful for the professionalism and dedication of the IBD community — all of whom are rising to the challenges of this unprecedented crisis.

Now more than ever, we believe in the importance of recognizing the pioneering work being done every day by exceptional IBD professionals. In recognition of today’s uncertainties, we have lifted our May 10 deadline for nominations. We will be accepting nominations until further notice into the summer months, and will communicate a new deadline at the proper time.

In the meantime, as your schedule allows, please help us share share positive and inspiring stories by nominating your colleagues for one of three Sherman Prizes:

The Sherman Prize — two $100,000 prizes and national recognition for accomplished experts changing the paradigm in IBD through their achievements

The Sherman Emerging Leader Prize — one $25,000 prize and national recognition for an early career high performer with great promise for significant future contributions.

In light of the tremendous obstacles facing the IBD community, a sincere thank you in advance for taking time out to participate in the Sherman Prize nomination process.
