Colleen Scanlon, CHI’s senior vice president and chief advocacy officer, is the recipient of the Catholic Health Association’s prestigious Sister Concilia Moran Award for 2018. She will accept the award at the CHA Assembly in June. A former chair of the association’s board of trustees, Colleen has directed CHI’s comprehensive national advocacy program for more than two decades. Her many accomplishments include our United Against Violence campaign, which is now working to eradicate violence in more than 40 locations across the country.
This is the second time in three years a CHI leader has received the Sister Concilia Moran Award, which recognizes “creativity and breakthrough thinking that advances the ministry.” In 2015, Peggy Martin, OP, JCL, CHI’s senior vice president for sponsorship and governance, was honored with the award.
At this year’s CHA Assembly another longtime CHI leader – Phyllis Hughes, RSM, DrPH, former chair of CHI’s Board of Stewardship Trustees – will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Sister Phyllis served on CHI’s board for eight years, including five as chair.
