Congratulations to Bev Thurber!
ECCLC Executive Director Bev Thurber is the recipient of the 11th Joseph Jabaily Public Health Hero Award.
The Jabaily Award was created by the Larimer County Board of Health in honor and in memory of Dr. Joseph Jabaily, a Loveland neurologist, community activist, volunteer and member of many local boards who died of injuries from a tragic accident in a charity bicycle race in the Summer of 2004.
