NWRPCA Summit Award Nomination
Share |

The Summit Award honors an individual within the NWRPCA membership who has reached a singular level of achievement in a particular area of expertise or service. Each year the area of selection is determined by NWRPCA.  NWRPCA awards are given at our Annual Membership Meeting at the Spring Primary Care Conference in May.


The 2017 Summit Award will be given to an outstanding leader in community partnership development at a community health center.


Community partnership development includes working with organizations across diverse sectors, such as local businesses, city and county governments, faith-based organizations, food banks, mental health organizations, shelters, hospitals, jails, credit unions, public health organizations, etc. in order to improve communication, reduce duplication, strengthen community engagement, integrate services, and improve the health of the community.   


We are looking for a leader at a health center who has done an exceptional job developing local community partnerships, which has improved the patient experience, patient outcomes, or overall operations at a community health center.
