Awards & Honors: Spring 2019

Published on April 9, 2019

We are proud to announce that Alive’s President/CEO Anna-Gene O’Neal received the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing’s inaugural Alumni Award for Innovation in Health Care. Anna-Gene was honored for creating the SHARE program, which improves communication about end-of-life between health care providers and families. The award was created to honor a VUSN alumnus who uses nursing experience and knowledge to create tools that solve health care issues. The award was presented to Anna-Gene by Linda Norman, VUSN Dean and Alive Board member, at the VUSN Reunion activities in October.

Anna-Gene O’Neal was also named to the Nashville Post’s tenth annual InCharge list which recognizes individuals in the business community who are helping Nashville thrive. She was one of only 39 selected by the editorial staff as stand-outs in the health care sector.
