We have a healthcare hero with #MaskUpAZ resources

AzHHA President and CEO, Ann-Marie Alameddin honored with healthcare award.

On Monday, November 9, 2020, the Phoenix Business Journal named AzHHA President and CEO Ann-Marie Alameddin a 2020 Health Care Hero for healthcare education!

Ann-Marie was nominated for the 20th annual virtual event which recognizes excellence in the medical community- excellence practiced by physicians, administrators and volunteers alike. Health Care Heroes are selected and judged based on nominations from those in the profession and the business community.

In accepting her award, Ann-Marie walked the walk of her continued messaging of the importance of facial coverings to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
