OCTOBER 6, 2014

Legal Aid Advocate, Deanna White, received the 2014 Community Health Award from HealthSource of Ohio. HealthSource is a private, not-for-profit Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC), which offers primary health care services. Deanna was honored because of her impact work with their health centers and rural vulnerable patients. In honoring Deanna, HealthSource stated that she was instrumental in furthering their mission of serving the under-served. They noted further, “Deanna’s diligence in improving the turnaround time for county Medicaid applications is just one example of her tenacity and connectivity to resolve issues. Without the help of Legal Aid and Deanna, many of our patients and consumers would not have had someone advocate on their behalf.” Deanna is pictured with Bev Gifford, Director of Outreach and Enrollment at HealthSource.
