Awards and Accolades

Congratulations to the Q315 PAH CAREs Grant Recipients!


Paul Giannette, Hall-Mercer Behavioral Health Services, for the Summer Therapeutic Day Program for children ages four to six years old who have emotional and social problems. The aim of the program is to ready the children for mainstream Kindergarten in September. The CAREs grant will enable two children from disadvantaged families to attend the nine-week summer program where they will have the opportunity to participate in educational and recreational trips, and intensive group, art and activities therapies.

Andrea Nicholson
, Department of Surgery, for the Penn Breast Health Initiative. Nicholson serves as patient navigator for Abramson Cancer Center and the Penn Breast Initiative, partnering with local community organizations to connect uninsured, low-income women to Abramson's breast health services. The CAREs grant will go towards providing transportation for these patients, as well as educational materials to use at outreach events and to promote the initiative throughout the community.

Jeffery O'Neill, Engineering Services, for the Bucks County Admirals Special Needs Hockey, a special-needs, co-ed ice hockey team. Funding will be used to purchase ice time and equipment, for young teens and young adults, offering them a time of fun, friendly competition, support – and a chance to freely be themselves.

Jeanette Sukhu,
Food and Nutrition Services, for community nutrition outreach. PAH has a long-established relationship with Old Saint Joseph's Church, Mercy Hospice and the Philadelphia Public Library at 7th and Market, bringing health education to homeless men, women in recovery and the general public. Sukhu leads the clinical nutritionists in sessions throughout the year specifically to offer nutrition education and promote healthy eating. Grant money will go towards teaching aids and visuals.

Congratulations to all the winners of the Penn Medicine CAREs grant for the third quarter of FY 15:
