Rural Health Champions of the Year
Each year, Rural Health Networks across Northern New York, including the Adirondack Rural Health Network, recognize those who have made significant contributions to the health of rural residents by selecting Rural Health Champions of the Year. 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 services to rural community members in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Warren and Washington counties.
2018 Rural Health Champions were honored in September at AHI’s 10th Annual Summit in Lake Placid. AHI’s Nancy Gildersleeve (far left) and Arthur J.
