Award Recipients

 
 
In honor of the life and work of Dr. Barbara Chester
 
The Hopi Foundation established an award for outstanding clinicians/practitioners who treat victims of torture, their families and communities. In issuing this award, we hope to honor the worthy persons who undertake the difficult and often dangerous work of providing healing services in circumstances of torture. We hope also to call attention to such abuses directed against specific regions and communities, and draw worldwide support for prevention of torture and associated trauma.
