Special Award

In 2013 the Collegium Ramazzini instituted a special award to recognize colleagues outside of the organization who have made significant contributions as advocates for occupational and environmental health safety and justice.

  • 2013: Kathleen Ruff (Canada) to honor her steadfast and effective advocacy in the international effort to ban the ongoing use of asbestos and for promoting better occupational and environmental health protections throughout the world.

  • 2011: US Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (USA) to honor her steadfast and ultimately successful advocacy in support of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act which guarantees health care to the men and women who responded to the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
