2015 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 2015 Janice Drake CRNA Humanitarian award is Mary Kay Thomas, CRNA, BS. Thomas co-founded MIMA FOUNDATION, a non-profit, non-denominational volunteer organization that sends health care workers to the underserved and needy in developing countries. The MIMA philosophy is to provide medical care to indigent populations and underserved individuals who cannot otherwise access health care, and to share medical knowledge with local health care providers to insure continuity of care. Thomas has traveled with MIMA to Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, and Uganda, but has always focused efforts in Cochabamba, Bolivia where the need is great.
