2016 Award

The Researcher of the Year Award is named in memory of John F. Garde, a previous Foundation Trustee, AANA Executive Director, and charter member of the AANA Foundation. The John F. Garde Researcher of the Year Award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to the practice of anesthesia through research. The AANA Foundation presents the prestigious 2016 John F. Garde Researcher of the Year Award to Tamra Dukatz, MSN, CRNA. Dukatz is a staff nurse anesthetist at Beaumont Health in Royal Oak, Michigan and a clinical instructor for the Oakland University Beaumont School of Nurse Anesthesia. After her son and daughter were both diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Dukatz began to conduct clinical trials regarding insulin glargine. Tamra’s work on insulin glargine has also been published in four journals, and she has presented at numerous national meetings. Tamra’s enthusiasm has inspired her students to conduct research that is implemented into practice, impacting patients’ lives.
