Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do and congratulations on this honor."
The Ollie B. Moten Award for Outstanding Service to One's Institution commemorates the work of Ollie B. Moten, RN, past chair of the Nursing Section of ACHA and former director of the Student Health Center at Texas Southern University in Houston.
