Idaho State University’s Caroline Faure has been named Idaho’s top 2010 HealthCare Hero Educator by the Idaho Business Review newspaper for her statewide efforts to educate the public about concussion and the adolescent athlete.

Dr. Faure, an assistant professor of sport science and physical education in Pocatello, was honored at an awards ceremony Oct. 8 in Boise. Dr. Miki Goodwin, who heads ISU-Meridian’s accelerated nursing program, and Dr. Glenda Carr, a clinical assistant pharmacy professor at ISU-Meridian, were honored as finalists in the Educator and Health Care Professional categories, respectively.  Dr. Paul Cady, dean of the ISU College of Pharmacy, was the evening’s guest speaker.

The Idaho Business Review awarded ISU-Meridian accelerated nursing student Mackay Oakey the $1,000 Health Care Heroes student scholarship.
In its fifth year, the Health Care Heroes program recognizes health care professionals, educators, physicians, nurses, and volunteers for their contributions and service to Idaho.
