The DeLuca Award
We created this award along side The American Heart Association to recognize an individual or group of people that are dedicated to making advances in the area of pediatric heart disease.
On February 7, 2015, we presented the first DeLuca Award to Dr. Michael “Dooley” Womack at The American Heart Association Go Red VIP Award Night.
Dr. Womack is a pediatric cardiologist practicing in Boise, Idaho. He is deeply and personally involved in the lives and care of his patients. He continually goes above and beyond to ensure that his patients and their families are being given the best care possible. There could be no one better to receive the first DeLuca Award.
Thank you, Dr. Womack, for all that you do.
In 2016, Dr. Womack presented it to the amazing Julie DuBois.
One parent said Julie was her sanity. She does such a great job of keeping parents informed so much so she will call or text from the cath lab. The little patients love her just as much! Julie’s positive attitude and passion for what she does is evident to all those who encounter her.
