Looking for compassionate caregivers

Do you know a doctor, nurse or other caregiver who displays extraordinary compassion? The Kenneth B. Schwartz Center is looking for nominations for its 9th annual Compassionate Caregiver of the Year Award. The winner will receive $5,000 and four finalists will receive $1,000 each.

The award honors Kenneth B. Schwartz, the Centerís founder and a health care attorney who died in 1995 after battling lung cancer. Nominations are due April 16.

The Schwartz Center is a non-profit organization housed at Massachusetts General Hospital promoting ways to improve relationships between caregivers and patients.
