Salute to Excellence in Health Care, Simon-Lee honored
Friday, April 28th, 2017, I received the "Salute to Excellence in Health Care" award from The St. Louis American Foundation. I was surrounded by colleagues, mentors, friends and family- all the wonderful individuals who have supported me in my career. I am so grateful to my friend and colleague who nominated me, all those who wrote letters on my behalf, and to The St. Louis American Foundation for a wonderfully inspiring celebration.
