Congratulations to Mental Health America of the North Shore Board President Dr. Josefina Alvarez who received the “Unsung Heroine Award” for Cook County’s 13th District for her work with MHANS.
Unsung Heroine honorees were selected based on their contributions to their communities, families and professional endeavors that are vital, but seldom recognized. During her years at MHANS, Josefina has dedicated herself to outreach, fundraising, and advocating for mental wellness through education and public policy, making a vital contribution to our organization and our community at large.
The recognition is overseen by the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues. Mental Health America of the North Shore is a long-time affiliate of MHAI. We congratulate them for their work in Illinois!
