The Greater Knoxville Business Journal presented its prestigious Healthcare Heroes Awards at its annual awards luncheon last month. Long term Executive Director, Ben Harrington, was recognized for the agency’s development and implementation of strategic community outreach programs.
Specific programs cited by the judges were the Mental Health 101 program serving 14,000 middle and high school students annually and the Mental Health Matters in the Workplace program. The Healthcare Heroes Awards are presented to individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the quality and availability of health care in East Tennessee.
“Being recognized by the Greater Knoxville Business Journal is a tremendous honor for the agency and serves as validation that our community outreach programs are highly valued by the community.
We could never have been so successful without a committed and supportive board, talented staff and caring community partners – schools, businesses and funders.”
- Ben Harrington, Executive Director, 2010 Health Care Heroes Honoree
