Award Recipients


The Steps Community Heroes Award is a CDC Healthy Communities Program initiative that honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to improve the health and well-being of others in their communities. These community leaders have contributed their time and expertise to make significant changes in their communities, making them a healthier place to live.

The honored Steps Heroes, representing a cross-section of society, were selected from nominations made by the 40 CDC-funded Steps communities. The selection process was challenging because all of the nominees made excellent contributions to their Steps communities.

Four Community Heroes were selected and recently honored at the Steps Program Managers Peer-to-Peer Meeting held in Atlanta, Georgia, June 1, 2009. The 2009 Steps Community Heroes Award recipients include a school health liaison, a community leadership team member, a health educator, and a fitness coordinator. Their contributions helped improve their communities by enriching collaborative efforts to reduce the burden of chronic diseases.
