On April 16, 2012, the Academy of Medical and Public Health Services (AMPHS) received their award for “Charity of the Month.”  The award was presented at Harlem Tavern Restaurant in Harlem, NYC by Ms. Heather Butts, Founder of LEARN for Life Consulting, and Medical Ethics Professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in New York City.   Upon presenting the award, Ms. Butts commented, “LEARN for Life Consulting acknowledges the excellent work of AMPHS, and their submitted proposal was the best I’ve ever seen.”

Last month, AMPHS announced that they have been selected as Charity of the Month by LEARN for Life Consulting and recognized as an organization committed to the health and well-being of others, dedicated to human rights and a belief in the possibilities for all individuals.

As “Charity of the Month”, AMPHS is working closely with Ms. Butts to further the reach of its health screenings, community events, fundraising efforts, and volunteer opportunities to the healthcare and medical professionals, faith-based community, in addition to students at Columbia University.

Ms. Latesha Richards, Director of Marketing & Sales said “Ms. Butts brings a wonderful mix of experience and credentials in law, healthcare, public health, and education that is a perfect fit for the audience AMPHS is looking to tap into and the expertise we need in the organization.  Heather has been just a wonderful resource.”
