Bronx, NY - On March 6, 2024, Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson in partnership with the Bronx Economic Development Corporation, announced they are accepting nominations for the People’s Choice Award for the second time in Bronx Week history. This year’s award will spotlight healthcare workers, with the winner being inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame during Bronx Week’s Induction Ceremony on Saturday, May 18th.

“We are excited to announce the return of Bronx Week and our People’s Choice Award! Last year, we recognized a Bronx educator, and this year, we are accepting nominations for a healthcare professional from our borough who has demonstrated exceptional service worthy of being included as an inductee on our Bronx Walk of Fame. Recognizing our healthcare workers is an opportunity to honor those who have played a crucial role in improving the health and well-being of our communities. We invite nominations that highlight these healthcare professionals’ remarkable stories and accomplishments, showcasing their profound impact on our borough,” said Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson.

“The Bronx Walk of Fame honors individuals who have not only excelled in their respective fields but have also made a noteworthy impact on the community,” said Rob Walsh, President of the Bronx Economic Development Corporation. “This year we are so happy to extend the opportunity to outstanding healthcare workers who have demonstrated dedication to the well- being of our Bronx community. It is not merely an acknowledgment of medical proficiency, but a celebration of the profound impact healthcare workers have in their communities.”

Since its inception in 1997, the Bronx Walk of Fame has provided a platform for Bronx natives and those closely connected to the borough to be celebrated for their work and contributions to their respective industries. Last year, BXEDC introduced the People’s Choice Award, focusing on educators. Luis Torres, principal of Community School 55, also known as the Benjamin Franklin School, emerged as the winner and earned his place on the Bronx Walk of Fame.

Nominations for the People’s Choice Award in Healthcare are being accepted through Monday, March 25 at 5:00 p.m. To be eligible, nominees must have either been born in the Bronx or have strong ties to the borough.
