The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) is calling for nominations for its Certificant of the Year Award. The award recognizes one BOC-certified individual for outstanding achievements in service, research and outreach.
“Through our Certificant of the Year Award we honor and celebrate the vast talents and achievements of BOC-certified professionals who go above and beyond to improve the lives of their patients,” said Matthew Gruskin, MBA, BOCO, BOCPD, CDME, chief operating officer at BOC. “We look forward to learning more about the outstanding work of our certified professionals and their impact on the community at large.”
The BOC Certificant of the Year Award distinguishes a professional in good standing in any of BOC’s six certification areas (DME Specialist, Mastectomy Fitter, Orthotic Fitter, Orthotist, Pedorthist or Prosthetist). Nominees should demonstrate exceptional service to patients, notable achievements in research, commitment to giving back to the community and/or outreach to developing countries or other underserved areas.
BOC will accept nominations online at www.bocusa.org/certificant-of-the-year through Monday, December 12, 2022. Nominations can be submitted for a colleague, coworker or industry professional; family member and self-nominations are not permitted.
