Rosemary McKenzie's passion for rural health and dedication to multicultural and multiracial populations were unparalleled. Rosemary served as the National Rural Health Association's minority liasion and program services manager in the Kansas City, Mo., office for 27 years. She died in 2011 due to complications from pancreatic cancer.
To carry on Rosemary McKenzie's legacy and honor her memory, the National Rural Health Association has established the Rosemary McKenzie Legacy Award to be presented annually during the Rural Multiracial and Multicultural Health Conference, a conference she predominantly and passionately coordinated. The award winner will receive free registration to the 2015 conference and a $1,000 stipend to be used for travel and accommodations for the event, where they will be recognized.
NRHA is looking for individuals who have mobilized their communities and have dedicated their lives to improving the health of multiracial and multicultural populations in the same spirit as Rosemary.
