Miller receives Diamond of Courage Award at Road to THON Celebration

Barbara Miller, chief of the pediatric hematology/oncology at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, was presented the Diamond of Courage Award from the 2011 Penn State IFC/Panhellanic Dance Marathon (THON) Overall Committee at the annual Road To THON Celebration held Thursday, Jan. 27, at the Penn Stater Conference Center on Penn State's University Park campus.

Miller, who holds the Christopher Millard endowed chair in pediatric oncology research at the Children’s Hospital, was selected for her award by the 2011 THON Overall Committee based upon her significant commitment and contributions to pediatric oncology care and research.

Outstanding staff, faculty, students and volunteers are recognized each year with four awards from the THON Overall Committee for embodying the four diamonds – courage, honesty, strength, and wisdom – as described in Christopher Millard’s story, which inspired the name of The Four Diamonds Fund.
