Closing the Gap Award
The inequities in health care that affect some populations ultimately affect us all. Since 2006, CHE has presented the Closing the Gap Award annually to a person or program that has made a significant contribution toward addressing health disparities in our community. The awardees demonstrate stamina, courage, and persistence.
