2021 Evan Newport HOPE Awards

June 7, 2021

The HOPE Award was developed and designed by Scott Newport and his son Noah - inspired by those who allowed Evan, Scott’s son, to have a happy childhood while he was a patient at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Not only does Evan’s legacy live on at Mott, but his award has given us the opportunity to acknowledge those who work hand-in-hand with patients and families across the entire health system.
