By: Worcester State University News

Moses Makor (MS in Nursing: Community/Public Health) has received this year’s Red Cross Britney Gengel International Humanitarian Award, which was presented last April at the 2015 Heroes Breakfast at the College of Holy Cross. Moses has raised awareness and funds to combat Ebola with the Liberian Association of Worcester County. In addition, Moses has organized supply drives and panel discussions to educate the public. He also visited Liberia in March with the University of Massachusetts Medical Services Liberian project to care for patients and set up treatment centers.

Moses was also recently named a 2015 Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame inductee. Every year, Tenet Health selects Tenet Heroes – individuals who have done extraordinary things for patients, for coworkers, for their facilities and communities. Moses was recognized for raising awareness, fundraising, and organizing supply drives to help Ebola patients and medical workers.
