COLUMBUS – NBC4 (WCMH-TV) is the recipient of a 2020 Healthcare Justice Award from Primary One Health. NBC4 was presented the Healthcare Justice Award for community partnerships for its work with Stuff The Backpack, where NBC4 raised funds for tens of thousands of local students for backpacks and supplies at the beginning of the school year.
Charleta Tavares, CEO of Primary One Health, presented the award to NBC4 Vice President and General Manager, Ken Freedman.
“With COVID-19, Stuff The Backpack was certainly harder but even more important to support the young minds of local students this year,” Freedman said. “On behalf of the men and women of NBC4, we thank Primary One Health for this tremendous honor.’”
