  • Amy Van Dyken-Rouen, a former Olympic swimmer raising awareness of spinal cord injuries after she was paralyzed from the waist down following an ATV accident.
  • Dr. John T. James, a toxicologist whose research upended the medical profession with stunning estimates of annual deaths caused by medical errors.
