Press Release:

    CARY, NC     The Foundation for Health Leadership and Innovation (FHLI) announced the winners of its annual awards today. The awards will be presented on Oct. 6 during the organization's Annual Bernstein Dinner at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.

    "These award winners represent innovation, empathy, and a deep dedication to improving health outcomes," said David Reese, president and CEO of FHLI. "It's an honor to recognize their decades of service in North Carolina."

    The 2022 Jim Bernstein Community Health Leadership Award will be presented to Randy Jordan, outgoing CEO of the North Carolina Association of Free & Charitable Clinics. Jordan, who retired in 2022, is a longtime supporter and partner of FHLI.

    The Jim Bernstein Community Health Leadership Award recognizes individuals who are invested in improving the health of their community or region. The award recipient exemplifies the Foundation's whole-person and whole-community approach to health and reflects the Foundation's values. The award recipient is deeply respected among their peers, they can be mid-to-late career, and they likely work in partnership with at least one of FHLI's programs.

    The 2022 FHLI Community Achievement Award will be presented to Dr. Viviana Martinez- Bianchi, M.D., FAAFP, of the Department of Family Medicine at Duke Health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she founded the Latinx Advocacy Team & Interdisciplinary Network for COVID-19, better known as LATIN-19.

    "LATIN-19 is creating space for leaders across North Carolina to collaborate on innovative solutions to the unique barriers faced within the Latinx community," said Reese. "This organization and Dr. Martinez-Bianchi's leadership are testaments to the importance of diverse voices having a seat at the table to create more equitable health systems."

    The 2022 FHLI Community Achievement Award recognizes individuals who have dedicated their careers to improving the health of communities, exemplifying the values lived by Jim Bernstein: everyone has a right to care; care should be delivered in a respectful, efficient, and effective manner; and health care belongs to the community it serves. The award recipient has had an impact, like Bernstein, at the community, state, and federal level and is deeply respected among their peers.

    The 2022 Annual Bernstein Dinner will celebrate FHLI's 40 years of serving communities across North Carolina and will focus on the theme, "Allyship. Advocacy. Action."

    In addition, FHLI will honor the 2022 Class of Bernstein Fellows. The Jim Bernstein Community Health Leadership Fellows Program was founded in 2006 to honor Bernstein's legacy of developing future leaders to carry on his work
