Our Steering Committee Member Trudie Jackson of Native Health Tobacco Program was awarded the NAN Horizon Award 2011 by Navajo AIDS Network.
Trudie will be recognized on May 28th in Vanderwagen, NM. There the Navajo AIDS Network, Inc. (NAN) will be acknowledging her outstanding services with the Native Health Tobacco Program. Her service and dedication to HIV/AIDS prevention on the Navajo Nation is a reflection of the courage and unselfishness recognized in her work.
And Trudie truly has done some stunning amazing work. She’s a passionate, recognized advocate of many issues.
The Network is extremely proud of her accomplishments which you may remember were also shared recently in cross-post feature of Trudie from the Phoenix Devil. We’re very excited for the work she will doing for the Network.
This honoring will occur during their annual NAN 2011 Native GLBT & Allies Summer Gathering, which is very appropriate. This gathering is when Navajo AIDS Network invites Native LGBTQ people to participate in a drug/alcohol free space to be refreshed physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Attendees can learn new efforts of HIV prevention and health issues relating to the Native LGBTQ community in addition to participating in outdoor activities and entertainment.
Trudie deserves this recognition, and along with NAN, we appreciate her devotion and leadership.
