The Not Alone Foundation advocates for patient health and wellness. The affiliated Diamond Awards recognize the contributions of professionals from various disciplines, while saluting equality, inclusion, diversity, and human rights.

As a Diamond Award recipient, Price joins a long list of notable previous participants, including filmmaker George Lucas, former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell, former Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, singer Dionne Warwick, and U.S. Ambassador Andrew Young.

“My goal was always to be a positive presence for my swim team and contribute to our collective success,” said Price, a championship swimmer and member of the UCLA Athletic Hall of Fame. In her role with Emory, she draws on more than 20 years of outstanding service in administrative leadership and academic support in higher education.

“The incredible work of the Not Alone Foundation truly mirrors this outlook by asking, ‘what can we do together,’” said Price. “For there is always more we can do together to be stronger, lift others, and make a difference in their lives.”
