“Every day our staff comes into contact with so many people who have great stories to tell. It is rewarding to hear people say they have more energy, sleep better and are enjoying higher quality of life because of the programs they participate in. To celebrate with a member as they reach their goals and tell us “I did it!” is the greatest reward,” said Collette Carter, Director of Owensboro Health Healthpark.
