Fourteen themes were awarded for the year 2006, every one of which is resulted from the devoted activity of the award winners pursuing the best thing they can do for the patients and their continuous efforts. Representative person for five themes among them, which were particular excellence, made presentations on their activities and their enthusiasm in seeking values of patients from their respective positions.
