Rose Allan Tucker

Maternal and Family Health Services is currently accepting nominations for the Rose Allen Tucker Award, which will be presented at our Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors on Friday, October 22, 2010.

The late Rose Tucker was a former Luzerne County Commissioner and long-time employee of MFHS. She dedicated her life to public service as a community leader, political activist, health advocate, and champion for women, children and families in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She opened doors for women to take leadership roles in the community and extended herself to help those in need.

Since 1996, MFHS has celebrated her legacy by presenting the Rose Tucker Award to a person who demonstrates a deep commitment to improving the quality of life for women, children and families in Northeastern Pennsylvania. With her passing in 2009, the Rose Tucker Award takes on even greater significance. The award will help keep her legacy alive and serve as a reminder of Rose Tucker’s great contributions to the community.

Nominees for the award should demonstrate a long-term commitment to improving the quality of life in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and a significant positive impact on the health and welfare of women, children and families. If you know of someone who has had a positive impact in their community, please consider nominating them for the award.
