Nominations are now being accepted by International Community Health Services (ICHS) and the ICHS Foundation for the 2016 Bamboo Award for Health to recognize the outstanding work of people and organizations in supporting ICHS and its mission.
The nominations will be accepted until March 18. Awardees will be contacted by March 28. The award will be presented at the ICHS Bloom Gala on May 21.
The Bamboo Award for Health was established to recognize the exceptional work and achievement of people and organizations that support ICHS’s mission of providing culturally and linguistically appropriate health services to improve the health of Asian Pacific Islanders (API) and the broader community.
These achievements may have resulted in:
Increasing access to health services for ICHS patients, clients, or the local Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community and other local underserved communities.
Improving measurable health outcomes for ICHS patients, clients, or the local API community or other local underserved communities.
Increased resources that allow ICHS to serve or expand its patient and client populations.
Last year, Tosh Okamoto, a longtime community activist and co-founder of Nikkei Concerns, and Seattle World School, a public school that helps immigrant children fully participate in American society, were named winners of the 2015 Bamboo Award for Health. (end)
