Annual Awards Nomination Forms

NCCHCA accepts nominations annually during April – May!

Since 2002, NCCHCA’s Awards Program has paid tribute to many outstanding leaders from North Carolina’s community health centers and partners. We invite the staff and board of all member health centers to nominate a candidate for each of the awards listed below:


Dr. Evelyn D. Schmidt Outstanding Service Award

In 2002, the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) established the Dr. Evelyn Schmidt Outstanding Service Award. A pioneer in social and community medicine, Dr. Schmidt, affectionately known as “Evy,” was the first Executive Director/CEO of Lincoln Community Health Center in Durham, NC, and served in that capacity for 40 years before retiring in 2011 and her death in 2019. Each year, as a tribute to Dr. Schmidt, NCCHCA honors a community-oriented organization that has improved access to care through innovative, comprehensive approaches as evidenced by outreach efforts, preventive health and educational programs, quality and efficiency of care, and/or strong community support and involvement.


Policy Maker of the Year Award

The NCCHCA Policy Maker of the Year Award is presented to an individual within the legislative or administrative branches of federal or state government who has made significant contribution to the community health field by affecting legislation that impacts NCCHCA members.
