Our own Laura Nelson M.D. was honored by the Phoenix Business Journal Thursday night for being one of the 25 Most Admired CEOs in the Valley’s business community. The awardees were selected for their outstanding leadership, with a focus on their achievements over the past year. It’s no surprise that Dr. Nelson was honored this way. Her leadership, collaborative approach to system change, dedication, and her commitment to the folks that we serve in Arizona’s behavioral health system add up to a not just a terrific leader but a genuinely good person.

Here’s the short story in this week’s Phoenix Business Journal, but there was also a special insert in this week’s hard-copy of the Journal (on newsstands now). Way to go Laura, and well deserved!
