The Adirondack Rural Health Network (ARHN), a program of Adirondack Health Institute (AHI), is seeking nominations for Rural Health Champions of the Year to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the health of rural residents in the region.
Rural Health Champions are individuals, such as health care providers, patient advocates, public health officials, human services personnel and community-based organization program staff, who demonstrate leadership and provide exceptional care and service to rural community members. Nominations will be accepted for individuals in the seven-county ARHN service region: Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Warren and Washington.
“Rural communities are wonderful places to live and work, but they also have unique health care needs,” said Courtney Shaler, ARHN Manager. “Rural Health Networks across Northern New York are partnering to celebrate individuals who are the living embodiment of the rural spirit and make a true, lasting difference in the health and lives of the people they serve.”
Nominations are being accepted through Friday, July 27. Champions will be announced at the 2018 AHI Summit, Thursday, September 27, in Lake Placid.
