Woodbury students and professor Jeanine Centuori, the Director of the Agency for Civic Engagement, were recently invited to attend the National Health Foundation’s Tribute Dinner. The dinner was held to honor Barry Arbuckle, President and CEO of MemorialCare, and celebrate leadership and vision for high-value healthcare.
The NHF Tribute Dinner annually recognizes an individual in the healthcare field who has demonstrated exceptional commitment, leadership and vision on behalf of an organization while advancing the health and well-being of the community. Honorees are presented the Ludlam-Gamble Award, which pays homage to NHF’s founders.
The National Health Foundation’s mission is to improve the health of individuals and under-resourced communities by taking action on the social determinants of health. Their vision is that all people, regardless of who they are or where they live, can achieve their highest level of health.
ACE connects students and faculty with nonprofit and governmental organizations that are dedicated to helping underserved communities. Students work collaboratively across Woodbury’s disciplines to combine their skills and test their fields of study on real projects for the public good. Projects include architectural design/build works where students build small tactical structures, business plans for organizations, graphic design including way-finding signage and logos, films and videos promoting a message, journalistic and creative writing, and other services.
