Melissa Leaston, who knew at an early age she wanted to become a nurse but had to overcome difficult circumstances to do so, has won the 2020 Whittier Street Health Center President’s Award. The honor, the result of a peer nomination process and organization-wide vote, was presented to Leaston at the Health Center’s fiscal year-end meeting on July 2.
