This year's Founders' Day Awards Dinner, slated for Feb. 20 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel & Resort, will honor ASU faculty, alumni and philanthropists dedicated to transforming health care.

In the most recent episode of The Alumni Experience, the official podcast of the ASU Alumni Association, managing editor Liz Massey interviews two of this year's honorees: Javier Cárdenas and Roy Curtiss III. 

Cárdenas is a 1999 graduate of ASU who is being honored for his contributions to concussion prevention and education among young athletes. Curtiss is the director of the Center for Microbial Genetic Engineering and the Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at ASU's Biodesign Institute.
