The Porter Prize is awarded in recognition of an individual’s exceptional performance in health promotion and disease prevention. The Porter Prize is named in honor of Milton and Adrienne Porter. Milton Porter (1910–96), as CEO of the L.B. Foster Company, was among the first industrialists in the nation to view the workplace as a site for wellness programs. Activities at his company resulted in smoking cessation, weight loss, and increased physical activity among employees. Understanding the benefits to society of clearly focused, well-managed, and fully funded health promotion and disease prevention efforts is the Porters’ legacy.
