This award was established in 2010 to honor Evelyn Mackin, the first president of IFSHT and a leader in the development of hand therapy worldwide. The award supports one or more therapists to attend the next IFSHT Triennial Congress from a country where hand therapy is developing and does not currently hold membership in IFSHT. The recipient is someone who is a potential leader of hand therapy in their country who may otherwise not have the resources to attend.
