Progress Village Receives Community Health Hero Award

The Munson Healthcare Community Health Committee presented its first ever Community Health Hero award to the members of Progress Village, a group working to help the community understand the reality and challenges of living in the crisis of poverty.

“One of the things our committee has done recently is to create a recognition for people in the community who are making a difference in the community, especially in the area of healthcare,” said Dan Johnson, Community Health Committee Chairman.

Progress Village was recognized for making a significant contribution toward improving the health and well-being of the community.

“Since there is a direct correlation between poor health and poverty, we feel this group is making an impact on the health and well-being of our community,” said Diane Butler, Munson Community Health Manager.
