LUMBERTON – Representative Garland Pierce was honored with the 2017 Regional Community Health Award sponsored by Southeastern Health.
Pierce was recognized for his extraordinary work in advancing the health of local communities through partnerships, learning and providing high quality and compassionate care.
Representative Pierce was chosen as the Government Award Winner. Since he’s been in office, he’s been a pillar in the community and in government on healthcare. He has helped fight to keep hospitals open, as well as being an advocate for allowing everyone to get the best healthcare available.
Pierce works with members of a committee that hosts an annual “Day of Caring” for seniors which allows them access to a healthy holiday meal and free screenings provided by local health agencies.
“It delights me to be able to give back to those in need,” Pierce commented.
