In honor of Heidi, who left this realm in January of 2020, we have created the ‘BRMI Heidi Sullivan Award."
It is difficult to describe Heidi to those who did not know her. She possessed every possible skill that we needed to launch BRMI.
She could edit, write, translate (she could speak several languages). As a lawyer she guided us. As a website developer she created our website, As a videographer, she filmed much of our content.
As talented as Heidi was, she was even a greater person. She was brilliant and humble, she was sophisticated and down to earth, she was highly educated yet kept the complex simple, she embodied a smile and a way that could smooth out the wrinkles of the universe.
She is missed by everyone who had the privilege to know her. Because of her incredible range and creativity, we have modified the award.
At our last conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, Heidi was remembered in stories and in our hearts. There was such a wonderful sense of community in which we felt she was there with us.
After the conference, many people who had met for the first time, began to share ideas and collaborate. There was discussion of doing studies, filming, etc. It made us think that sometimes even a small amount of money might help these ideas turn into something larger.
The guidelines are below and should help inform what we have in mind.
Award General Guidelines:
1.) Attend our conference and create a collaboration with someone else, or a group. (Not everyone who is part of the collaboration need to attended the conference, just the person submitting the project proposal.)
2.) Create a proposal for a project related to Bioregulatory Medicine in which to produce a tangible result. (This could be a study, a short film, etc.) Let your imagination be your guide!
3.) List estimated expenses and time to complete (The maximum expense should be $2,000. The latest the project should be completed by July 31, 2023.)
4.) Submit form by December 10, 2022.
5.) BRMI will have an allocated budget of $2,000 which we will award to one or more submissions. The winners will be chosen by the creativity and the value of the proposal. Any leftover money will remain part of the BRMI operating fund.
6.) Advisors to BRMI may be a part of a proposed group, yet may not be the primary person who submits the application.
7.) The recipient/recipients will be chosen by the sole discretion of BRMI.
8.) The announcement of the recipient/recipients will be made by February 1, 2024.
9.) The product(s) of the proposal(s) will be highlighted at the following conference, where the process begins again.
10.) The product(s) of the proposal(s) will be highlighted on the BRMI website without any restrictions to BRMI. However, any intellectual property that is created as a result of the collaboration is owned by the group.
