Dr. Corinne Walentik was a powerful advocate who helped shape the Foundation in its early days and whose work included saving the lives of countless infants as a doctor in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Over the course of a decade (2012-2022), the award was presented annually to a health leader in Missouri who exemplified the passion, dedication, and energy that Dr. Walentik brought to her work. Although the award has been retired, her spirit lives on through the innumerable lives she touched, and in those she inspired to follow in her footsteps.
