We're excited to announce that AHA's own Indiana Government Relations Director, Danielle Patterson, is the recipient of this year's Bill Crawford Minority Health Power Award.
The Honorable William "Bill" Crawford Minority Health Power Award is presented to an individual who advocates to eliminate minority health disparities, ensuring successful passage of policies that address chronic health conditions and increase access to quality care.
As our Indiana Government Relations Director of 16 years, Danielle has championed dozens of health policies at the local, state and federal levels that improve health across the Hoosier state. During her tenure, Danielle has worked to increase funding for Minority Health Initiatives, smokefree communities, Indianapolis complete streets and better nutrition in our communities, to name just a few.
Please join us in congratulating and thanking Danielle for her tireless efforts!
