Celebrating Medical Providers Everyday Heroes 2014
Interfaith Partnerships,( formerly Mississippi Coast Interfaith Disaster Task Force) has provided a range of services for vulnerable residents since 1980. In the past we activated in the aftermath of a hurricane disaster, however with the widespread damage following hurricane Katrina the Board of Directors began to redefine its mission as “building community resiliency” through information, training and education. Over the next three years, our work will focus on Bridges out of Poverty and Preventive Healthcare. This year we are hosting our fourth annual Everyday Hero’s Ball. Each year we select a group of helping professionals who actively contribute to building community resiliency.
This year Interfaith Partnerships will celebrate five medical providers who have made an outstanding contribution to the community through initiatives in Jackson, Harrison and Hancock counties. These Everyday Heroes will be honored for their accomplishments during our annual Everyday Heroes’ Ball on November 8th at the Great Southern Club.
We are asking you to nominate a medical provider (physicians, mid-level providers, dentists, optometrists, etc.) who has exhibited significant involvement through connecting people to health care, educating residents about preventive care and/or empowering residents to assume responsibility for their healthcare. In short, we want to acknowledge those providers who have actively worked to build and sustain the long-term health of the coastal community.
Please forward a resume and letter supporting their candidacy. The letter should highlight endeavors that reflect their commitment to service in the community. We have invited a distinguished panel of judges to determine the five people that we will honor as the 2014 Everyday Heroes.
Attached is a questionnaire that you may use to guide the selection of your nominee. Please submit your nomination by August 31st to Interfaith Partnerships- email@example.com or mail to 11975 Seaway Road, Suite 233, Gulfport, Ms. 39503
