Dr. Wallace honored with award

Dr. Kelli Wallace, along with her staff at the Webster County Family Planning Clinic, were twice nominated and recently honored as a Triple A Recipient by the BEE Inspired CAPP program.

The Triple A award recipient is an individual who is deemed to be an approachable adult in the community when it comes to tough discussions surrounding topics such as sexual health, testing, and birth control.

The award was presented to Wallace on June 26 by BEE Inspired CAPP program coordinator, Tiffany Larson.

“The work that you are doing is so important,” said Larson during the award presentation. “It’s exciting to know that our youth are seeking you out for advice and for health needs. We appreciate all that you do to help empower youth and adults to make healthy, informed decisions through education and community awareness in the serving area.”

The Webster County Family Planning Clinic is part of Webster County’s Public Health Department and serves residents in Webster, Hamilton, Humboldt, and Wright counties.
