Sue Meeks Awarded the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Award


IPAC’s Board Vice-Chair Sue Meeks has received a great deal of recognition this year for her unwavering commitment to her community and her work. On Friday, Dec. 9, Sue was awarded March of Dimes Pediatric Nurse of the Year Award. Earlier this year, in April, Sue was bestowed with the Champions for Children award.

Both awards highlighted Sue’s incredible work building and managing the Family Navigator Program in Athens. The Family Navigator Program specializes in providing one-on-one advocacy, resources and education for families who have concerns about their child’s behavior and development. 

Additionally, Sue co-authored a federal grant of nearly $1 million to help expand IPAC’s own outreach programs. For this and her endless work to improve the lives of those she serves, Sue has earned this recognition.
