Meg Distler, Executive Director of St. Joseph Community Health Foundation received the Community Leadership Award from Healthier Moms & Babies on May 6, 2015. Healthier Moms & Babies is a program started at the St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ and Meg in 1995.  

Meg was honored for her work in writing the initial grant that launched the program in 1995 and since, having been actively involved on its board, in fundraising, as a donor, as well as her activity on numerous other community boards.  The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation has also provided nearly $200,000 in support towards the program’s ongoing growth since 2003.  Congratulations Meg!
