Guilford County Public Health recently acknowledged that many local non-profit organizations provide vital services that assist public health. The types of local non-profits range from child service organizations to elderly services, and include groups that address environmental issues, animal rabies issues, and even chronic conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure, or diabetes. To show public health's appreciation for the extensive work of their community partners, the health department sponsored a Community Partner Appreciation event, and highlighted the services of these local partners. There were awards for 5 of the many partners, and the event provided an opportunity for all non-profits to publicize their services and continue to increase community awareness of their benefit to this community. Partners who were recognized, and partners who advertised their services all stated their appreciation for another opportunity to tell the community about their organization, and their appreciation to Public Health for the recognition. This may become an annual event.
