2019 Philip Gilbert Award Recipient: Megan Denk

Congratulations to Megan Denk, recipient of the 2019 Philip Gilbert Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service. The award, given each year, is reserved for a dedicated and passionate volunteer who shares Healthy Start’s vision and actively contributes to the realization of Coalition goals.

Megan is the Executive Director of THE PLAYERS Center for Child Health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital. It is obvious to see Megan’s passion for saving babies and helping families in the community through her commitment, time and energy she contributes to serving as a Board Member with the Coalition for several years. Her contribution is greatly valued and very deserving of this award.

The award is given in honor of the late Philip H. Gilbert, founding chair of the Coalition and executive vice-president of the Duval County Medical Society, who devoted countless hours to advocating for and supporting services to meet the needs of the underserved in Northeast Florida. It honors individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to Healthy Start and the health of women, infants and families.
