The Canadian Heart Failure Society (CHFS) Annual Achievement Award was created in 2016 to recognize a member who has made significant contributions to the academic, research, or clinical scopes of heart failure.
- Although the recipient is usually expected to be a member of the CHFS, if nominated, exceptions can be considered at the discretion of the Nominations and Awards Committee.
- Particular consideration will be given to contributions towards advancement of heart failure issues in Canada.
Nominations must include (and will be judged by) the following:
- two letters of recommendation from CHFS members in good standing to support each nomination; and
- a 1-2-page Biography of the nominee.
The award will be presented at the CHFS Annual General Meeting. The winner will receive an honorary crystal award.
A call for nominations will go out to all CHFS members annually with a closing date of early-May.
