After three years of virtual awards, PreventEd’s Spring Awards Luncheon returns in-person! Join us on April 28 to celebrate the people making a difference in the field of substance use in our community. The Spring Awards Luncheon has been an annual event since 1975, ten years after the agency came to be. The event is held each April, which is the annual Alcohol and Drug Awareness month.
This luncheon is an opportunity for substance use and other professionals to come together, network, and honor a few of its own. This is important because so many who toil in this field remain unsung heroes who pour their heart and soul into the work they do with little compensation or recognition.
This year’s award recipients are:
- Living With Purpose: Service Award for remarkable and selfless efforts in addressing substance use in the community.
- Chelsea Boyd: Champion Award for uncommon leadership in advocating for substance use prevention education.
- Matt Woods – KMOV: Gateway Award for exemplary work in raising the public’s awareness of alcohol and other drug issues.
- Adrienne Eigels: Volunteer Award for time, resources, and contributions dedicated to reducing and preventing the harms of alcohol and other drugs.
- Jesse Williams: Helen B: Madden for an exceptional career devoted to the treatment of substance use disorders.
- Miryam Baied: Tasch-Kopolow Scholarship for commitment to achieving excellence in a professional career serving the substance use field.
This year’s luncheon is sponsored by:
