I would like to say how honored I was to receive The Richard Dideriksen Award. Richard is a mentor, a true professional, scholar, and dear friend. It is an honor just to be in his company and to share time with him. Thanks to those who nominated me and thanks to all of those who have lent your support and friendship throughout the years. Special thanks go to the Environmental Staff, and the Administration of the Gaston County Public Health Services Department.
For all of you in the Environmental Health Profession across the state, please continue to believe that together we all can make a difference in the lives and health of our citizens across the state. Remember to support your professional organizations by getting involved!.
Love you all, DocT
