Seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award

We're honored to be presenting the Reverend Janet M. Cooper Nelson, Chaplain of Brown University, the seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award at this year's gala. This special award is given to people who have dedicated themselves to the core values of hospice: to offer comfort, compassion and dignity to patients at the end of life and hope and healing to their families. Previous recipients of the Human Dignity Award were Stanley Aronson, MD, Rabbi Leslie Gutterman, Milton W. Hamolsky, MD, Edward Martin, MD, MPH, Arthur S. Robbins and Fred Schiffman, MD.

Janet Cooper Nelson was appointed Chaplain of the University, Director of the Office of Chaplains and Religious Life and faculty member at Brown University in 1990. As Brown’s Chaplain she leads a multi-faith team of associate chaplains and oversees student religious organizations. She earned degrees at Wellesley College, Tufts University and Harvard Divinity School.
