"The awards are presented to recipients from regions, sites, programs and services," said the RHA spokesperson at the ceremony. "This year, there were seven award winners and one team award winner. Nominations were made by their peers." 

Jennifer Hyra began with Southern Health-Santé Sud in March, 2022.

"Jennifer has demonstrated her commitment to compassion and respect in her work as a Disability Case Coordinator, building relationships with management and staff throughout the region. Her insights and experience have been instrumental to the launch of our Workplace Safety and Health program and she has often been relied on to assist in other areas of the Department like Labour Relations and Recruitment."
