Miriam Y. Vega, PhD, Chief Executive Officer at the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center (JPA) has been designated as one of Queens’s Most Influential People by Schneps Media. She received this recognition because of her continued commitment, impact and influence in Queens County. Under Dr. Vega’s leadership and guidance, JPA’s five (5) sites are successfully emerging from the pandemic challenges and are continuing to serve the community with increased services and care.
“It has not been an easy path for any of us in healthcare,” Vega said. “We have a very dedicated staff many of whom exemplify what it means to be dedicated to the patients they serve, and it makes a huge difference.” Dr. Vega goes on to say that more focus on community health care in general is needed as increased numbers of people are depending on health centers such as JPA for their healthcare.”
The awards ceremony was held at Terrace on the Park on October 27, 2022.
