Celebration of Life: Sue Bell at Lake County Free Clinic

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our CHN family member, Sue Bell. Sue was an active service member in her community and worked hard as a Registered Nurse, instructor and volunteer at Lake County Free Clinic. She was our Volunteer Nurse of the Year in 2017, and we can never thank her enough for her lifetime of service. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and the Lake County Free Clinic during this time of mourning.

Thank you to the Columbus Foundation for putting on this Zoom Webinar!
