This weekend at the 25th Anniversary Art of Compassion Gala hosted by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) Alicia Silverstone and Marilu Henner will each receive the inaugural Voice of Compassion Award. The award recognizes individuals who have communicated compassion, caring, and the highest ethical principles.

Alicia Silverstone and Marilu Henner have had a tremendous impact in spreading the message about health issues related to diet and nutrition,” said Neal Barnard, M.D., PCRM’s founder and president. “They have played a particularly significant role in shining a spotlight on the powerful health benefits of a vegan diet.”

Silverstone, actress and author of The Kind Diet, is being honored because she “exemplifies the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, including natural weight loss, clear skin, and tremendous energy.”

Henner is working with PCRM to persuade Congress to revise the Child Nutrition Act. In her book Marilu Henner’s Total Health Makeover, the actress offers a 10-step health program to achieve a healthy, happy, and balanced life.

The Voice of Compassion Award was also presented to Ellen DeGeneres this week on the set of her show.

The star studded Art of Compassion gala takes place on April 10 in West Hollywood and is supported by many celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Moby, Katherine Heigl, Woody Harrelson, Ben Stein, Ginnifer Goodwin, Carol Leifer, and Tobey Maguire.
