FHCC Staff Recognized with CDC Immunization Award
The Illinois Department of Public Health announced today that Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center Health Technician Rosalinda DeJesus has been selected as Illinois’ first Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Childhood Immunization Champion.
“It was so amazing just to be nominated for this award,” said DeJesus, who has been a health technician with the federal government for five years. “But, to be selected among all the passionate and talented health technicians in the nations is truly overwhelming.”
The Illinois Centers for Disease Control explained that the CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award is a new annual award to honor individuals who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization.
“I know it’s my name on the award,” explained DeJesus, “but this honor really could never happen without all of my Lovell FHCC leadership.”
