Crossroads Hospice presents award to local social worker
An annual award has been given to a local social worker from Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia.
The “Caring More” award is given to a deserving social worker nominated by peers for exemplary service to patients and the community at a special awards breakfast Thursday, March 24, 2016.
The award is given by Crossroads Hospice after soliciting judges from the local region who select from those nominated, looking at the services they provide, as well as endeavors outside of work.
Recognition comes with a cash prize given to a selected charity.
This year’s winner, Michel “Kiwi” Popyk-Wyatt MSW, LCSW, will receive the ‘Caring More’ award for service above and beyond expectations. She works at Bothwell Regional Health Center advocating for patients of all ages.
KMZU’s Ashley Johnson spoke with Popyk about what she does, and why it is important.
Popyk holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Missouri, Columbia.
The Hotel Bothwell will host the awards breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
