Award Nominations

At Salute! we offer three distinct awards to the individuals and/or organizations in Southeast Michigan that have dedicated their work to improving the health and wellbeing of our diverse communities.

Sy Gottleib Award: This award was established in 1992 and recognizes Symond Gottleib, a former executive director of GDAHC. Mr. Gottleib was an outstanding leader who made numerous contributions to healthcare reform in our region. This award recognized an outstanding healthcare professional who has demonstrated sustained visionary leadership in the region.

Eagle Award for Visionary Leadership: The Eagle Award was introduced in 2004 to honor the contributions of an organization that has made steady progress in advancing healthcare quality, access to care, and/or the cost of care.

Breakthrough Award: Introduced in 2015, this award celebrates an individual and/or organization for their impact on the health and well-being of southeast Michigan through community engagement and innovations.

Nominations forms are now available! Please submit them via email to Nicki Gabel at or by mail at 30200 Telegraph Rd., Suite 105, Bingham Farms, MI 48025.


Salute! is an amazing way to get your organization in front of our community, and it is a direct investment in our region's future by supporting transformation program and initiatives. This is truly a substantial marketing and engagement opportunity for any organization. Similar to last year, we are offering the Specialty Sponsorship level again this year, as well as offering a new tier to celebrate our anniversary.
