2025 Catalyst Award Nominations Open July 15, 2024

Merriam-Webster defines a catalyst as: “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.”

The inaugural 2023 WORLDSymposium “Be The Catalyst” encouraged all attendees to be catalysts and spark change. In 2024, WORLDSymposium presented the first “Catalyst” award to Zachary Thomas, who was nominated in recognition of his efforts to instigate and expedite changes to newborn screening in Alabama.
