Selection is based on four criteria: vision and innovation; leadership; impact and influence; and social responsibility. Past Trillium Health Partners winners include President and CEO Michelle E. DiEmanuele and Head of Opthalmology Dr. Ike Ahmed.

Dr. Nikore is being recognized for his work as a thought leader in healthcare, an innovator, a mentor to new physicians and as a humanitarian who does work around the world.
