Highlights From the 2016 Extraordinary Healer Award Event
Each year, CURE magazine gives readers a unique opportunity to honor an oncology nurse through the Extraordinary Healer Award for Oncology Nursing by describing the compassion, expertise and helpfulness that a special oncology nurse has exhibited.
The awards ceremony and reception, held on April 28, 2016, in conjunction with the Oncology Nursing Society's 41st Annual Congress, was attended by approximately 1,000 nurses from across the country. This year's winner, Lynn Malestic, of the Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center, was recognized with the Extraordinary Healer Award and a special spa trip to Travaasa Spa in Austin, Texas. In addition to the presentation of the finalist essays, the reception also featured an inspirational and humorous keynote from Emmy award-winning actor Eric Stonestreet, of television’s hit comedy “Modern Family.”
