In 2000 the Ted Freedman Award for Innovation in Education was created.
Ted Freedman was the surprised honoree of an annual award launched by Healthcare Quarterly in cooperation with Agilent Technologies. The award recognizes those people who inspire, advocate and enable education in healthcare. The winners are honoured with a self-portrait in bronze of the artist as a patient recovering from brain surgery by award-winning sculptor Amy Switzer of Barrie, Ontario.
