“Hyatt Named to 2013 Public Health Works! Honor Roll”

ELMIRA – Joyce Hyatt, Ph.D., RN has been recognized as Chemung County Health Department’s representative on New York State’s "2013 Public Health Works! Honor Roll".  Ms. Hyatt, a registered nurse and Public Health Network Coordinator for the Chemung Valley Rural Health Network (CVRHN) as well as the Coordinator for the County's Medical Reserve Corps, was selected as the County representative by Robert Page, Public Health Director.

The Public Health Works! Honor Roll recognizes the important and crucial work performed by public health workers.  Each local health department selects one outstanding employee for inclusion in the yearly Honor Roll.  Honor Roll members strive to prevent disease and promote good health and exhibit a continued and significant commitment to improving health in the community.

In selecting Hyatt, Robert Page noted, “Joyce has been Grant Facilitator for the Chemung Valley Rural Health Network (CVRHN) since 1995.  CVRHN is a network of 34 health and human services organizations, and Joyce has distinguished herself as coordinator and leader.  Joyce also is coordinator for the Medical Reserve Corps, an organization that she helped to create in 2008.  Her career has been exemplified by her abilities to communicate and coordinate effectively with community partners to achieve public health objectives.  CVRHN was able to fund high speed internet service to rural care providers and teleconferencing equipment for hospitals and public health and helped to develop a telehealth disease management program that has been highly effective in assisting patients to manage chronic diseases like congestive heart failure, diabetes, and COPD."

“Joyce has been a dynamic and effective member of numerous coalitions including the AIDS Task Force, Shape Up Chemung, Eat Well/Play Hard, Tobacco Awareness Community Partnership, and Cancer Services Program.  Her leadership and passion for community health initiatives have made her a role model for public health in the Southern Tier,” added Page.
