EAC Network's former Vice President Receives Town of Hempstead Pathfinder Humanitarian Award
Rebecca Bell receives the prestigious Pathfinder Award from Town of Hempstead
By: EAC Network
Ms. Bell began her career at EAC Network in 1979 and spent 37 years with the organization as an instrumental force for change and initiated many of the agency's programs still operating today, such as Supervised Visitation and Senior Respite. Last year, after recognizing that a large percentage of EAC Network's clients had difficulty accessing healthcare, Ms. Bell spearheaded the organization's involvement in improving access to cost effective, quality healthcare for poor and at-risk individuals by coordinating primary, acute, behavioral health, and long-term services for people with Medicaid, which became the Health Home Care Coordination program.
Although Ms. Bell has retired from her position as VP & COO, she currently serves as a consultant for EAC Network. Her dedication to the organization and the community remains steadfast. EAC Network congratulates her well-deserved recognition by the Town of Hempstead.
