The Monroe E. Trout Premier Cares Award was established to recognize exemplary programs nationwide, which have made health services more accessible to a specific medically underserved population, particularly as demonstrated in superior health outcomes. The Award spotlights innovative programs that support people excluded from or underserved by the mainstream health delivery system, including farm workers, homeless children, pregnant teens, low-income mothers and infants, and individuals who donít have the strength or means to reach a clinic or hospital. The winning program must be able to show measurable benefits/outcomes covering a full two-year span and must be capable of being replicated. Entries are accepted each year in July. The award winner receives $100,000 and the other five finalists receive $24,000 apiece. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
