The Jean Gaskin Vision Award was established in 1996, named for and first given to Jean Gaskin to honor her enduring contributions and extraordinary leadership within this organization. The award, which shall be presented rarely, is a $5,000 grant given in honor or in memory of an Alliance member who has demonstrated exceptional vision and outstanding leadership. The recipient is involved in the selection of the health agency to receive the grant. A nomination may be submitted in writing to the Alliance President by any Alliance member, noting that the high standards set by the original recipient are the benchmark for the future.
The Jean Gaskin Vision Award is the highest award the Alliance can bestow on a member.
