Nominations Sought for Sylvia Evans Award

Each year our organization recognizes an outstanding woman from the region who has contributed to the health and well-being of area residents through her volunteer efforts.   We also present a “Young Leader Award” to an outstanding young female high school student who has strengthened the community through her volunteer work.  We’re soliciting nominations for both awards, and hope you’ll consider nominating a deserving someone you may know. 
Any group or individual wishing to make a nomination may do so by sending a written description of the nominee’s contributions in this region, along with the nominee’s name, address, telephone number and email address to:  Coos County Family Health Services, Attn:  Sylvia Evans Committee, 54 Willow Street, Berlin, NH 03570. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, February 12th.

Coös Family Dental, on Berlin's Main Street, is open to anyone in the community who needs
care. The clinic is filling a need that is particularly acute in the North Country, where more than two in ten adults have not seen a dentist in the past five years, and very few dental practices are accepting new Medicaid patients.
