Champions Of Change
Health: Local Woman To Be Honored At White House For Her Efforts To Raise Awareness About Cystic Fibrosis
A Montgomery County woman will be honored at the White House Wednesday for her efforts to fight a devastating disease. The President will recognize nine people as Champions of Change for being on the front lines of finding new kinds of treatments.
The campaign called “Champions of Change” had their end-of-the-school-year celebration Thursday night.
Every week, the White House honors community leaders as “Champions of Change” for their service. This week’s theme was “Following in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” Out of the eight honorees, three were local residents.
