Lance Armstrong Found. Pres. named hero
AUSTIN, Texas – President and CEO of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Doug Ulman, received the ‘Health Care Hero’ award from the Austin Business Journal’s public health category.
Ulman won this award based on his contributions to health care in Central Texas.
In 2007, Ulman helped promote the constitutional amendment to create a Texas Cancer Prevention and Research Institute. Ulman also organized the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Notebook, a resource for cancer survivors in low-income or uninsured families.
“I am honored to be recognized the Austin Business Journal as a health care hero. The true heroes, in my opinion, are the people who live with cancer every day and fight the disease with all they’ve got,” said Ulman.
