Academy of Medical and Public Health Services (AMPHS), announced that their President and CEO, Hewett Chiu, was nominated for recognition as the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of New York City’s 2012 Nonprofiteer of the Year, and is one of the five (5) finalists.

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of New York City (YNPN-NYC) supports the professional development of the next generation of nonprofit leaders by providing opportunities for skill-building, information sharing, and networking.

“Hewett founded the Academy of Medical & Public Health Services as a college freshman to fill in the gaps of healthcare. He wanted to increase healthcare access to underprivileged community members, making healthcare not a privilege, but a basic human right. In just two years and devoting a minimum of 20 hours per week to the cause, he grew the organization to become a recognized leader in health access as a community referral center. Hewett built a strong team of over 40 volunteers, completed over 215 free comprehensive community health screenings for cardiovascular risk factors, developed and implemented a sustainable community health model, and opened a community patient library for health education and research,” said one of his supporters.

All five finalists will be honored and the 2012 Nonprofiteer of the Year will be announced at YNPN-NYC’s upcoming anniversary event on June 28th.

AMPHS congratulates President and CEO, Hewett Chiu, for receiving this prestigious nomination.
