Congratulations to Mountain Family Board member Samuel Bernal, who was recently selected to receive a Media Community Health Champion Award for 2018. This award is presented by the Colorado Community Health Network (CCHN) on behalf of more than one in eight people in Colorado from medically underserved communities who depend on community health centers for their health care.

CCHN represents twenty Community Health Centers that operate 202 community, migrant, homeless, and school-based clinic sites throughout the state. Colorado’s CHCs chose Samuel as the recipient of this award for his commitment to providing valuable information for his listeners on issues related to immigration and health care and through educating listeners about their health care options, including Connect for Health Colorado coverage options and the services provided by Mountain Family Health Centers. Residents of the Roaring Fork Valley are better able to understand their options when it comes to seeking health care services because of Samuel and his work as Vice President for Entravision Communications Corporation at radio station La Tricolor, highlighting issues of importance to Spanish-speaking community members.

Thank you Samuel for your ongoing commitment to people in need of high quality, affordable health care. You are a true health care champion! Click here to read more about his award and Colorado Community Health Network
