In memory of Jana Quinn, the members of Professional Women in Healthcare created the "Jana Quinn Inspirational Award". This award recognizes an inspirational person in the healthcare industry, male or female, with qualities that define their success not only professionally, but throughout life. The recipient will encompass the qualities that were an inherent part of Jana. She was a mentor, role model, leader, family focused, professional, a loyal friend, a person not afraid to struggle, encouraging, accepting, and so much more. Jana’s combination of endearing qualities drew others in and made them better just by knowing her.
The Anne Eiting Klamar Leadership Award of Distinction recognizes a woman who has experienced significant growth to become an accomplished leader. A woman who has catapulted her career, scope of responsibility and professional development. She exudes confidence, integrity, and is well respected by the industry, her peers and her subordinates. She is committed to giving back and is a leader that others desire to follow and be mentored by.
This award is in honor of Anne for her wisdom in recognizing the need for PWH, her inspiration and determination to start the organization, and her leadership and mentorship to so many.
