2016 Stepping Strong Innovator Awards
The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings brought heartbreak to the city of Boston. Following the bombings, the Reny family established the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at BWH to honor the medical heroes who saved their daughter’s life and limbs, and remain deeply committed to turning tragedy into hope for the tens of thousands of civilians and military personnel worldwide who have suffered from the devastation of traumatic injuries and events. The Stepping Strong Innovator Awards, one of three program areas funded by the Stepping Strong Center, supports groundbreaking projects in innovative trauma treatment and recovery. In this video you will meet the three finalists competing for a $100,000 award in the third annual Innovator Awards competition. By watching the video and voting, you will help chart the course of multidisciplinary trauma innovation here at BWH and worldwide.
