2016 Award

The Janice Drake CRNA Humanitarian Award is presented to a CRNA who volunteers and provides anesthesia, education, and training in needy areas of the United States and overseas. The winner of the 2016 Janice Drake CRNA Humanitarian Award is Richard Henker, PhD, RN, CRNA, FAAN. Henker works at UPMC-Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh and provides anesthesia care at hospitals worldwide. In addition, he has been a guest lecturer and visiting professor at universities around the globe, including eight universities in Japan alone. He serves as a site reviewer for the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and a member of the American Nurses Association Committee on Nursing Practice Standards and Guidelines. He is on the Board of Directors for Health Volunteers Overseas and the program co-director for the Nurse Anesthesia Overseas HVO site at Lao Friends Hospital for Children. Dedication to serving others who are less fortunate, whether through education or by providing anesthesia, exemplifies his character and makes Richard more than deserving of this award.
