The Sprague Award – named for Charles Cameron Sprague, the first President of UT Southwestern Medical Center and former President and CEO of Southwestern Medical Foundation – is our highest community distinction. It was created in 1991 to recognize outstanding philanthropists who have provided significant support to advance health care through contributions of time, leadership and resources.
