SITKA - The steering committee for the second annual Sitka Health Summit, "Working Together for a Healthier Sitka," is accepting nominations for awards that will be given to Sitka health role models and wellness champions.
These awards are for Sitka residents who have made outstanding contributions in one of six categories - physical activity, nutrition, safety or injury prevention, tobacco prevention and control, holistic health and general wellness. One individual and one group to be honored in each category. We hope to honor adults, youth, elders, policy makers, health care providers and Sitkans of all walks of life who have helped make our community a healthier place to live. The awards will be presented during the Sitka Health Summit community dinner, which takes place on Wednesday night, May 14, at the Hames Athletic and Wellness Center.
Nominations should include a brief description of why this individual or group deserves an award, and should provide us with contact information for both the nominator and the nominee, if it's available.
Nominations should be received by Penny Lehmann no later than Tuesday, April 15. Nominations can be called into Penny at 747-3255, e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Penny Lehmann, Sitka Public Health Center, 210 Moller Dr., Sitka, AK 99835.
