Florida Atlantic University and Northwest Community Health Alliance’s Community Health Center, with the West Palm Beach YWCA, recently received the 2021 Community Collaborators Award from Nonprofits First Inc.
Among the honorees were two from the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing: Karethy Edwards, associate dean of academic programs and executive director of the health center; and Karen Chambers, an assistant professor. They received this recognition for their efforts to lessen health care differences among women from minority groups with limited access to quality care.
The West Palm YWCA refers its clients to the Community Health Center.
