2.3.23: The Greenwall Foundation is seeking nominations for the 2023 Bernard Lo, MD Award in Bioethics (Lo Award), a $25,000 prize given annually to recognize significant contributions to bioethics. This Award honors Dr. Lo’s service to The Greenwall Foundation as its President & CEO (2012-2020) and founding Director of the Faculty Scholars Program.

The Lo Award recognizes one area of accomplishment in bioethics each year. The 2023 Award will be presented for forging connections across division through bioethics. Such division may derive from differences in perspective, politics, power, community, identity, or discipline (to name only some examples). In an increasingly polarized society, bioethics can serve as a model for articulating and navigating differing values and finding shared resolutions to difficult problems. This year’s Award will be given to a recipient or recipients who have leveraged bioethics to bridge divides between groups or individuals. The Foundation encourages nominees from academic, non-profit, government, industry, and other sectors.

Nominations are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, March 20, 2023. For more information on the Lo Award, this year's criteria, and how to submit a nomination, visit the Request for Nominations page.
