Due to the cancellation of the 2020 NACHC Policy & Issues Forum, the 2020 Grassroots Advocacy Award Recipients were never adequately recognized for their achievements. We are incredibly grateful to honor these awardees. Please take a moment to learn more about these advocates and their work.
Grassroots Hall of Fame inductees have all made lasting contributions to ensuring the creation, survival, and strength of Community Health Centers and the health center movement through their dedicated and tireless advocacy efforts over many years.

The NACHC Grassroots MVP Award is named in honor of the late Elizabeth K. (Betsey) Cooke, whose constant effort and unflagging persistence as an advocate for Community Health Centers and health center patients set an example for all Health Center Advocates to follow. All honorees have gone above and beyond in their efforts to ensure that their Members of Congress actively supported health centers or to establish and expand grassroots advocacy efforts at their health center or in their state.
