Call For Nominations for Community Health Leaders

(NAPSI)-Do you know someone committed to tackling the toughest health problems in the community? If so, you can nominate your unsung local leader for the Community Health Leaders (CHL) Award. The award recognizes outstanding individuals who overcome great obstacles to improve local health and health care services.

Community Health Leaders work to improve health conditions in various ways--fighting for better treatment of migrant workers, battling for free language assistance services at hospitals, providing diapers to needy families and much more. Every day, Americans are stepping up to meet the health challenges in their communities with innovative approaches.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation established the Community Health Leaders Award in 1993. Today, there are more than 150 leaders in 45 states and Puerto Rico who work at the community and neighborhood levels to address some of the most difficult health and health care problems in the nation. Every year, the Community Health Leaders Award celebrates the work of 10 extraordinary men and women with national recognition and $125,000 each to support their continued efforts.

Nominations typically are accepted from September through the first week of November annually. To learn more, including how to nominate someone for the award, visit
