Montpelier, OH – The Williams County Health District is pleased to recognize Maggie Fisher at the Williams County Department of Aging with the 2017 Public Health Champion Award. This honor recognizes extraordinary achievements by an individual or organization that protects and promotes the health and well-being of Williams County.
Over the past year, the Department of Aging has demonstrated a continuous commitment to public health through collaboration. Williams County had set a priority of increasing the flu and pneumonia vaccination rates for our 65 and older population. Maggie played an instrumental role in coordinating senior center site managers to identify residents through to have their photo taken for a billboard campaign to promote vaccinations. This has been in addition to the continuous partnership between the Williams County Health Department and the Williams County Department of Aging to host flu shot clinics at senior centers annually.
Additionally, Maggie has been involved in Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Planning as a new and active participant of Williams County Partners for Health. Since her involvement, Maggie has taken it upon herself to promote physical activity through the Department of Aging.
The Department of Aging has been an essential partner in advancing the optimal health and wellness of the county; therefore we invite everyone to join us in congratulating the Williams County Department of Aging, this year’s Public Health Champion Award winner!
