2020 Innovation Awards

The i2i Center for Integrative Health Innovation Awards recognize innovation in services and programming to increase integrated, whole person approaches to care. Given 2020’s challenges of a pandemic and social injustice and the need for systemic response, we are refocusing this year’s award categories to recognize those who are doing an outstanding job taking on these challenges and meeting the needs of those we serve. Nominations will be accepted from any individual or from any organization(s) serving those who utilize NC’s publicly funded MH/IDD/SUD service system.

PLEASE LIMIT SUBMISSIONS TO ONE NOMINATION PER CATEGORY.
