Melba R. Moore to Be Recognized by the Healthcare Businesswoman’s Association

The City of St. Louis Department of Health’s Director, Melba R. Moore, will receive the 2017 Healthcare Accomplishment Recognition Award (HCARA) this week for her work in Healthcare Advocacy. This award, from the St. Louis Chapter of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA), is designed to recognize outstanding women with a record of achievement and leadership in the area of healthcare.
 
Women selected for this award typically have made an outstanding contribution in healthcare that has addressed a pertinent need, problem or issue, or have made a difference that improved the quality of life for others St. Louisans.
 
For Moore, her outstanding contribution was made as an advocate for the health of St. Louis residents, especially the underinsured and underserved.  Through her leadership, the Department of Health has been critical in linking residents to their health care options as well as providing services for those without other resources.  She has cultivated community partnerships that continue the advocacy efforts that ensure services are provided continuously to maintain progress in improving key health indicators in affected populations.  Moore was nominated by Julie Eckstein, a health care industry consultant and principal at Brown Smith Wallace.
 
Director Moore will be honored at the 2nd Annual HCARA luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton on Thursday, September 28, 2017.  If you are interested in attending the awards luncheon, please visit: https://my.hbanet.org/MyHBA/EventDetails.aspx?MeetingID=DA756133-1868-E711-B5CE-0050569C00A7.
