Jeremy King, clinical information system coordinator at Odyssey House! Jeremy was one of five recipients of New York’s annual addiction professionals awards. The awards are given by the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) to individuals “whose work prevents substance abuse and offers the hope of recovery to the 2.5 million New Yorkers suffering from drug, alcohol or gambling addiction.”
OASAS Commissioner Karen Carpenter-Palumbo presented the award to Jeremy at the Run for Your Life event on September 25th, praising him for his contributions to quality improvement projects and tobacc0-free initiatives, and for becoming a role model and mentor to clients training for the NYC marathon in the Run for Your Life program.
Accepting the award, Jeremy said, “I would like to thank Commissioner Carpenter-Palumbo for the recognition today as well as the leadership of Odyssey House – including Dr. Peter Provet, John Tavolacci and Jeff Savoy – for their innovative spirit and progressive mindset. Most importantly, though, I want to thank the Odyssey House clients for providing me with the inspiration for my continued success in this field. It is your collective determination, strength, and commitment to the recovery process that makes my work meaningful and enjoyable.”
Please join us in congratulating Jeremy on his distinguished award!
