This award is the Conservative Partnership Institute’s highest honor, bestowed upon an individual for their courage and dedication to truth and liberty.

Dr. Atlas’ voice was a beacon of truth for the American people throughout the height of the Coronavirus pandemic and continues to be to this day. He scrutinized the restrictions and unprecedented mandates and advocated for policymakers to objectively consider both the virus’ harms and the totality of impact of policies. Dr. Atlas continues to challenge his peers to reexamine the policies that severely harmed America’s families and children, while failing to save the elderly. He asks them to take a close look at the detrimental effects of removing our children from the classroom, parents losing their job, social isolation, and missed medical appointments. 

Statement From Sen. Jim DeMint: 

“Dr. Atlas is renowned for his leadership in policy and medicine. He served as Special Adviser to President Trump and was a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. While many on the Left and in the media were pushing nonsensical, fear mongering narratives about the coronavirus, Dr. Atlas spoke out in defense of liberty and demanded honesty and curiosity for truth from the media and the science community. We were thrilled to bestow CPI’s highest honor to Dr. Atlas, and we look forward to continuing to support him as he fights for conservative values and the truth here in Washington,” Sen. DeMint said. 

Statement From Mark Meadows: 

“I know firsthand the leadership and expertise that Dr. Atlas brought to the White House while we were on the frontlines fighting not only the coronavirus, but the false narratives coming from the Left and the media. Dr. Atlas was key to the success the Trump Administration had in combating the virus, ensuring our supply chains were up to speed, and in developing and launching a record-breaking vaccine. No one deserves this award more than Dr. Atlas. CPI is proud of his work on behalf of the American people, and we are excited to continue working with him,” Meadows said.
