In his nomination of Nolan, Joshua Joseph, MD, from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center recognized Nolan’s work to build partnerships that promote healthy communities, especially in the area of breast cancer survivorship and cardiovascular disease risk. “Dr. Nolan designed and evaluated educational programs for young women with a history of breast cancer, which were delivered in churches, support groups and online,” Joseph wrote. “She also is testing the feasibility and acceptability of a community-based lifestyle intervention aimed at improving healthful behaviors in African American men, in addition to serving the community by coordinating health education and screenings … Dr. Nolan’s presence in Columbus is helping us truly become a healthier community.”

The Innovation Studio; 2. The Starting Line; 3. Healthcare Innovation and Entrepreneurship Workshop; and 4. Interprofessional Innovation Symposium. These programs have provided thousands of people with the resources to bring ideas to life.”

They richly deserve this recognition, and we cannot wait to see what they do next to dream, discover and deliver a healthier world.”
