CONGRATULATIONS TO PUBLIC HEALTH CHAMPIONS!
During the most challenging public health crisis in the world, it’s more important than ever to celebrate public health. That’s why the County recently honored hundreds of people and organizations for their hard work to keep our residents and communities safe, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This is the 20th year the County has presented the annual awards, which embody the County’s Live Well San Diego vision to promote healthy, safe, and thriving communities.
As the lead for the Older Adult & Disability Sector of the County’s COVID-19 Response, Aging & Independence Services had the opportunity to nominate organizations that made a particular impact over the past year.
