2019 Heroes of Military Medicine Awards

Tuesday, 7 May 2019 6:30 pm

The Heroes of Military Medicine (HMM) Awards honors outstanding contributions by individuals who have distinguished themselves through excellence and selfless dedication to advancing military medicine and enhancing the lives and health of our nation’s wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans, and civilians. The Heroes of Military Medicine is presented by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF).

Three of the awards presented at the HMM dinner are given to active duty military medical professionals from the Army, Navy and Air Force, respectively. The Offices of the Surgeon General for each service nominate the candidates for these three awards. The final honorees are chosen by the HMM Advisory Committee comprised primarily of former Surgeons General. In addition, one Hero of Military Medicine Ambassador Award and one Hero of Military Medicine Senior Leader Award will be presented.
