Submit Your Nominations for our 20th Anniversary Luncheon

Do you know someone who makes significant contributions as a leader and advocate for mothers and babies? Does an organization come to mind when you think of work and progress being made in maternal and infant health? Generate Health STL is seeking nominations of those who have been exemplary in advancing the health of women, children, and families in the St. Louis Region, and we need your help in this process!

Awards in 3 categories: Dr. Terry Leet Researcher, Dr. Corinne Walentik Provider, and Alderman Gregory Carter Community Champion, will be presented on October 25th, 2019 at The Caramel Room at Bissingers, from 11:30am-1:30pm during the Standing Up for Mothers and Babies Awards Luncheon.

The Researcher award is named in memory of Terry Leet, PhD, MPH (1952-2009), who was widely recognized locally and nationally as a scientist, teacher, and humanitarian. Terry was a Generate Health board member, collaborator, and friend.  Through this award we hope that others may continue to be inspired by Terry’s drive to improve our community.

The Provider / Practitioner award is named in memory of Corinne Walentik, MD, MPH (1949 – 2012), who was widely recognized as a passionate advocate for babies and families, particularly for those with little voice, few resources and unequal access. Through this award we hope Dr. Walentik’s legacy as the community conscience for children will endure and inspire others to invest in what’s right for families.

The Community Champion award is named in memory of Alderman Gregory Carter (1958 – 2012). Alderman Carter is recognized for making significant impact on the health of women, children, and families in his community.  Alderman Carter rallied the community to address high rates of infant mortality and was a champion of the TRIUMPH initiative.
