KUDOS: Anna Whalen

Anna Whalen, Safe Start coordinator in the Office of Community Services (OCS), was recognized as one of the 2012 Women of Achievement by the Mon River Fleet. This honor was presented to 10 women who work to improve their SHIPs (State Health Improvement Plans) and communities. Anna serves as safety leader for the Duquesne SHIP.

“Among other issues, the Duquesne SHIP addresses domestic and school violence and safe communities, which makes it a fantastic partner for Safe Start,” said Anna. “While I am honored to receive this award, I am more proud to see the great things that Safe Start and the Duquesne SHIP have been able to accomplish in the community.”.
