A Lindsborg woman who works for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has been nominated for national recognition.
According to the agency, Stephanie Wolf, KDHE Bureau of Family Health, was nominated for the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) Emerging MCH Professional Award.
Wolf was recently selected as the award recipient for Region VII (Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri) and will be recognized at the AMCHP Conference in San Antonio.
AMCHP makes this national award and recognition available to outstanding state or local MCH professionals under age 45 whose work has made substantial contributions to their state’s MCH program; their state’s maternal and child health outcomes; or made other significant contributions to promoting and protecting the health of women, children, and families in their state.
Stephanie was nominated by the KDHE Bureau of Family Health Director and Kansas MCH Director, Rachel Sisson. The following is an excerpt from the Nomination:
“Stephanie is an inspiration to all who cross her path. She effectively builds and sustains strong, diverse partnerships to protect and promote the health of Kansans. She consistently demonstrates the capacity to address long-standing MCH challenges. She has advanced our state’s approach to working collectively to address needs and improve outcomes, especially for pregnant women and mothers, infants, and their families. Stephanie’s program design abilities, relationship-building skills, dedication, incredible work ethic, and true passion for improving birth outcomes has
resulted in 16 Kansas communities with established collaboratives and 32 other communities in various stages of development. Stephanie does not look at what she is doing as a job but more as a
calling. She truly exemplifies all the qualities of an outstanding MCH leader and change make.”
