International Community Health Services (ICHS) and the ICHS Foundation have begun accepting nominations for the 2011 Bamboo Award for Health. The Bamboo Award was established to recognize the outstanding work of individuals or agencies whose strong achievements have resulted in increased access to health services, improved measurable health outcomes, and increased resources.
Founded in 1973, ICHS is a nonprofit community health center offering affordable primary medical and dental care, acupuncture, laboratory, pharmacy, behavioral health, and health education services. ICHS’ two Seattle-area clinics serve more than 18,000 patients each year.
Nominations should be made on behalf of an individual or agency. Nominations will be accepted until March 14. The award will be presented at the ICHS gala on May 21. ♦
