Katy Nesbit Service Award

Each year, UNYOC recognizes a UNYOC member for exemplary service to the Chapter. The recipient receives a plaque and paid registration to the next Annual Meeting.

In 2004, the award was named in honor of Katy Nesbit, a dedicated member of both UNYOC and the Medical Library Association. Among her many honors and achievements, Katy was a past recipient of the Chapter’s Service Award. You can see one example of Katy’s work on the Moments of Distinction: A History of the Upstate New York & Ontario Chapter of the Medical Library Association page.  The call for nominations for the Katy Nesbit Service Award occurs annually. The deadline date for this year is Friday, August 25.
