Crain's Health Care Heroes Finalist: Chester Ho, MD
An independent panel of judges reviewed more than 100 nominations this year as part of the selection process for the 2010 Health Care Heroes awards. The judges took into account nominees' leadership, approach to health care and philanthropy/community service in selecting this year's 27 finalists. And while the region as a whole is known for its strength in the health care field, individuals and organizations like those selected by the judges are the ones working and advancing the sector.
The judges were: Lois A. Bowers, managing editor of Medical Economics; Martha K. Raymond, a registered nurse and managing editor of Contemporary Pediatrics; Sheryl Stevenson, managing editor of Ophthalmology Times; Julia Talsma Kotowski, a medical marketing consultant; Tracey Walker, managing editor of Formulary; and Ron Rajecki, a freelance writer with 25 years of experience in the trade press for titles such as Modern Medicine.
