The National Hispanic Scientist of the Year Award was developed in 2001 with a mission to recognize outstanding National Hispanic scientists who promote a greater public understanding of science and motivate an interest in science among today's youth. Proceeds from the award celebration help fund MOSI's YES! Team, a career and educational enrichment program for at-risk youth.
Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry, along with presenting sponsor Bright House Networks, has chosen their 2012 honoree, Nora D. Volkow, M.D., Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health.
NIDA supports most of the world’s research on the health aspects of drug abuse and addiction. Learn more about the honoree: http://www.mosi.org/national-hispanic-scientist-of-the-year/about-the-honoree.aspx
