The Health Association of Niagara Inc. is soliciting nominations for the Karen Albond Courage in Caring Award.
This honor is given in memory of longtime HANCI board member Karen Albond, who passed away in 2003 after significant volunteer and professional service to the Niagara community. The award recognizes individuals in the Niagara community who persevere in service to others despite physical or developmental disabilities, or chronic illness.
