THANK YOU to all Aspen Valley Hospital physicians, staff and volunteers who made the Fresh & Healthy Community Picnic a wonderful success! On a beautiful September day, we welcomed over 300 community members to the hospital for an afternoon full of delicious and nutritious food, fun for the kids and live music. Karen Maciejko, Trauma Program Manager, fit bike helmets for many grateful adults and kids. And Dr. Chris Miller answered questions about healthy eating and healthy lifestyles, sharing details on our Walk with a Doc and Plant-Based Recipe Swap programs.
A sincere thank you goes out to Deidre Hull of the Foundation for her help organizing the event, and to Kristy Bates and her Nutrition Services team for the incredible food.
We absolutely couldn’t have done it without our gracious team of volunteers who went above and beyond to make the afternoon special. Everyone pitched in to help with set-up, grilling, clearing tables, supervising kids’ activities and so much more.
Events like the picnic are an extension of the warmth and caring AVH provides for our patients every day. We are honored to care for the Aspen community and are dedicated to making it the healthiest in the nation!
