WASHINGTON- The Arnold P. Gold Foundation will honor the Dean of the College of Nursing and Allied Sciences Gina S. Brown with the 2023 National Humanism in Medicine Medal at a New York gala on June 20.

Brown will be recognized for her leadership and achievements in healthcare, government, and for her positive impact on society. The upcoming gala will bring together leaders in medical and nursing education, hospitals, and other health systems to recognize healthcare leaders for their work in improving the healthcare system.

“I am extremely honored that my work is being recognized with such a prestigious award," Brown says. “This award serves as motivation to continue the work that I am doing and help the next generation of leaders in the field of medicine and nursing.”

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation described Brown as a transformational nursing leader and a global champion of health equity and social justice. She has been with Howard University as Dean of the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences since 2015.

Brown has frequently contributed to highly respected scientific and Christian magazines. She was the inaugural dean of Columbia Union College's School of Graduate and Professional Studies (now Washington Adventist University) and served there as assistant vice president. Additionally, Brown was dean of the School of Health Professions, Science, and Wellness at Washington Adventist University for 12 years. 

Brown’s work is well-regarded for promoting equity, inclusiveness, and diversity. Brown has travelled across five continents as a spokesperson for social justice, health equality, and religious liberty. Her achievements in the medical field are widely appreciated and celebrated by the Gold Foundation and the Howard community.
