Dr. Navin C. Nanda, Professor of Medicine and Director, Heart Station/ Echocardiography Laboratories, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, was selected by the Board of Directors and the Selection Committee of the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO) as a recipient of the 2006 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. The official Award ceremony was held in the historic Great Hall on Ellis Island near the Statue of Liberty in New York on May 13, 2006. It ranks as one of the nation's most prestigious and highest civilian awards and is officially recognized and sanctioned by the United States Congress (both the House of Representatives and the Senate). The awardees' names are also listed in the Congressional Record. Previous award recipients have included Presidents George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter, William Clinton, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, as well as other renowned leaders and Nobel Prize winners. The award recognizes outstanding American citizens who have distinguished themselves by their outstanding contributions to this country. Only two others from Alabama have received the Award previously: Rosa Parks, Civil Rights Activist in 1986 when the Award was first instituted and Ronald K. Richey, an industrialist. Dr. Nanda is the first physician to receive this Award while living and working in Alabama. Dr. Nanda is internationally known for his pioneering work and research accomplishments in echocardiography, outstanding contributions to ethnic Asian Indian and African American physician organizations in this country and advancing the development of cardiology in many countries of the world.
