2020 Health Heroes

As part of Dell Med’s 2020 Health Leadership Awards, we wanted to focus this year on all of the people — teachers, students, volunteers, front-line health workers and many others — who are making Central Texas communities safer amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We put out a call for nominations and received the names of nearly 200 people. While this represents only some of the many health heroes around us, we are proud to acknowledge them here. Meet this year’s nominated Health Heroes.
