Community Health Advocate Award Honorees

In light of recent fires, this year we also celebrate three special community Health Advocate Award Honorees: Sonoma County Supervisor James Gore, KSRO News Director Pat Kerrigan, and KBBF Spanish Language Radio President Alicia Sanchez. Nothing is more important for our physical, emotional and mental well-being than the stability and safety of our homes and families. The fires prompted us to pause and reflect upon those individuals and organizations that impacted our sense of safety and wellness. For many in the northern region of the county, comfort came in the form of special messages heard live through the day from these outstanding community leaders we honor on this day.
