Award winners will be announced at this year's WVPCA CHC Leadership Forum in September. 

The WVPCA uses a nomination review rubric to determine the award winners. Nominations are given points based on these criteria:

Distinguished Service Award

The Distinguished Service Award recognizes significant lifetime contributions and service to the Community Health Center system of care in West Virginia. Those eligible include individuals in an administrative role within WVPCA member organization.
Nominations can be submitted by anyone at the community health center level. 


Pamela J. Moore Health Center Engagement Award

This award, named in honor of Pamela J. Moore, recognizes outstanding engagement in; contributions to; and commitment to our network of community health centers.

Pam Moore was a longstanding member of the WVPCA team, supporting member engagement as well as PCA and CHC collaboration, and the events and trainings provided to bolster best practices and partnership at the community level. With over 35 years in support of community health centers, Pam was unapologetic in her role and understood the critical need for deep connection and relationship building. As she would say – "It’s the people that matter!"

Individual community health centers within the WVPCA who engages with the Association and its network consistently through points of engagement are eligible for this award. Engagement points including but not limited to: PCA trainings, events, grant opportunities, pilot programs, innovative opportunities, and participation in collaborative spaces such as Noddle Pod, ListServs and monthly affinity group calls. Selection is made by WVPCA staff, utilizing anecdotal and data driven engagement points. 


Outstanding Advocacy Leader Award

The Outstanding Advocacy Leader Award recognizes an individual within one of the Association member organizations who has made an impact on both their community health center and their community/patients through participation in advocacy-related efforts at either the state and/or federal level or through grassroots advocacy work. Grassroots advocacy is about finding strength in numbers — and harnessing that strength to influence public opinion and government action by engaging employees, members, patients, and other stakeholders to raise awareness and empower individual voices.

Nominees may include, but are not limited to, front-line staff, outreach workers, financial assistance staff, interpreters, accounting, and workforce staff who have contributed to promoting patient care and/or health center processes through advocacy. Nominees demonstrate a commitment to the mission of the health center and a dedication to amplify the role and visibility of Community Health Centers within the local community and beyond.

Nominations can be submitted by anyone at the community health center level.
