You “Rx”ceptional Awards

VHCF’s annual You “Rx”ceptional Awards recognize stellar commitment at both the corporate and community levels to address the medication needs of Virginia’s uninsured. The awards are bestowed each year at VHCF’s Heroes in Health Care event.

Individuals who are honored with a You”Rx”ceptional award are role models who have provided excellent service, commitment, and dedication to a Medication Assistance Program and its patients/clients.

VHCF is not accepting nominations this award at this time. Please check back for more information or contact Juliet Tinsley (804/828-5803).

For 2016, Novo Nordisk and Katherine Carmon, Medication Assistance Caseworker at the Medical Society of Virginia Foundation were selected as the year’s You “Rx”ceptional award winners.
