The Adirondack Rural Health Network, a program of AHI, is seeking nominations for Rural Health Champions of the Year. The champions will be announced at the AHI 2017 Summit on Thursday, September 21, in Lake Placid, NY.

Please take the opportunity to nominate an individual who demonstrates leadership and provides exceptional care to community members within the seven counties of the Adirondack Rural Health Network. Nominations will be accepted from Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Warren and Washington counties.
*For information on nominating individuals from other counties, please email [email protected].

Criteria:

  • Must be an individual (provider or non-provider) delivering outstanding care in the community.

Examples include: providers, patient advocates, public health officials, human service personnel, and community-based program personnel.

  • Individuals must be involved in the community, volunteering their time outside of work to serve the members of their community.
  • Individuals must be making a lasting contribution to the rural health care system in one of the seven counties served by the ARHN.
  • The individual cannot be a prior Rural Health Champion.

Each organization may make one nomination for consideration on behalf of their agency/institution.
