Two AmeriHealth New Jersey Associates Named Volunteers of the Year by NJBIZ
Cranbury, NJ – June 23, 2015 — At an awards ceremony on Tuesday, June 23, two AmeriHealth New Jersey associates have been named winners of NJBIZ’s Healthcare Hero Awards in the Volunteer Hero of the Year award category. Koreana Iman-Sample, product manager and Regina Reid, provider partnership associate, were recognized for the countless hours of service they have given to the Ronald McDonald House for more than a decade.
The Healthcare Heroes Awards program honors individuals and organizations that are making a significant impact on the quality of healthcare in New Jersey.
On a monthly basis, both women provide and serve meals to families who are staying at two Ronald McDonald House locations in New Jersey at Cooper University Health Care in Camden and Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick.
While the volunteer opportunity is open to all AmeriHealth New Jersey associates and several associates do participate each month, Iman-Sample and Reid are the consistent representatives who lead and coordinate the effort on behalf of AmeriHealth New Jersey on an on-going basis.
“I am inspired by the children and parents I meet each month,” said Iman-Sample. “Listening to their stories and seeing first-hand the struggles these families face, I take nothing for granted in my own life.”
“I feel an obligation to give to others,” said Reid. “I have been very fortunate in my life, and it is my pleasure to be of service to others.”
The Ronald McDonald House offers a welcoming, supportive environment for families during a time of uncertainty and stress. Family members can stay together in a comfortable home with private rooms and many amenities, helping them to remain strong throughout the course of their child’s treatment.
