Araceli Orozco, one of our district nurses, was recently awarded the 2021 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Award from the American Nurses Association (ANA), Illinois Chapter based on her commitment to intentionally investing in the field of nursing within a historically marginalized community. Araceli accepted her award during a Virtual Professional Issues Conference on November 6, 2021, which also included a cash prize of $2500. In addition to this award, Araceli also recently successfully passed the National Board Certification for Nursing, and is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Nursing from Illinois State Univerity’s Nurse Leadership and Management Program, further demonstrating her personal and professional commitment not just to the school nursing profession but to students, families, and this community.

Congratulations Araceli!
