After a recent taping of the Ellen DeGeneres show, Ellen accepted Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's Voice of Compassion Award. The award recognizes individuals who have communicated caring, compassion, and the highest ethical principles.
Presented by Dr. Neal Barnard, founder and president of PCRM, Ellen received the award for all the work she has done by using her "humorous and compassionate voice to raise awareness of health issues and environmental and animal welfare concerns."
The Voice of Compassion Award also honored Portia de Rossi who was not able to make it to the show. This weekend Alicia Silverstone and Marilu Henner were also honored.
