Manchester Neighborhood Health Division Head Presented Van Scoyoc Award

Jaime Hoebeke of the Manchester Health Department has been named the recipient of the 2018 Sandi Van Scoyoc Legacy Award by the New Hampshire Children’s Health Foundation. Hoebeke is head of the department’s Neighborhood Health Division.
 
The Legacy Award’s annual prize of $2,500 is presented to a New Hampshire organization or individual who exemplifies the foundation’s founding president’s commitment to improving the health and wellness of New Hampshire’s children and families.
 
“Jaime has been incredibly effective in Manchester,” said foundation President and CEO Gail Garceau. “She has worked tirelessly to secure millions of dollars in grants and to coordinate health resources across the community to improve children’s health.”
  
Hoebeke is well respected for championing efforts related to the city’s health improvement strategy, such as the Manchester Community Schools Project which aims to transform local elementary schools into neighborhood hubs for residents.
 
As part of this effort, bilingual community health workers and social workers have been co-located within targeted elementary schools in disadvantaged Manchester neighborhoods, in partnership with the Manchester Community Health Center. On average this connects 400 families to health, medical and educational resources each year.
 
She also has worked to better identify integration opportunities to improve family connections to critical resources, such as within Manchester’s well established oral health program and mobile dental clinic. This past year more than 600 students received services and treatment through the city’s efforts.
 
Gail Garceau presented the award to Hoebeke at a ceremony attended by Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig.
