Inaugural annual prize salutes University of Chicago, Weizmann Institute professors
Two groundbreaking professors—the University of Chicago’s Juan de Pablo and the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Alon Chen—received the inaugural Bennett Family Award for Collaboration in the Science of Wellness. The annual award is designed to recognize experts doing collaborative research that merges science and wellness for the advancement of human health and wellbeing globally. It is a joint initiative between wellness advocate and Bennett Family Foundation President Bija Bennett and the Global Wellness Summit, an annual international symposium for leaders shaping the wellness industry’s future.
Bennett cited the transformational potential of scientific research as an impetus for establishing the Bennett Family Award , which was presented at the 2022 Global Wellness Summit in Tel Aviv this past fall.
