Award Winners Inspire HOPE, JOY in MIchigan Medicine Patients

The annual Evan Newport HOPE and JOY awards — honoring individuals and teams who have gone above and beyond in their daily work to embrace the principles of patient and family centered care — took place Wednesday afternoon in a packed Ford Auditorium.

The awards are named after Evan Newport, who was a patient at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital for the first 252 days of his life. The care team that enabled Evan to lead a happy childhood in the face of health care challenges inspired his father, Scott, and brother, Noah, to found the HOPE Awards program. They have been presented annually since 2012.
