Davies Public Health winners

I’ve just gotten the news that the Cherokee Indian Hospital Authority in Cherokee, N.C., and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services have won the 2008 Nicholas E. Davies Public Health Awards of Excellence.

The Cherokee Indian Hospital Authority, part of the Indian Health Service, does not have its own Web site, but I did find one presentation that might shed some light on the IT work being done there.
