Dan Martin Award
Recognizing dedication to rural health
In June of 2003, the Kentucky Rural Health Association began a new tradition. At the organization’s annual conference, it announced the first recipient of an award honoring a lifetime contribution to rural health in Kentucky; this recipient was Dr. Dan Martin of the Trover Foundation in Madisonville. The annual award now bears his name and is given each year to an individual who has provided many years of service to rural Kentuckians. The individual’s contributions might be in areas of direct patient care, health professions education, health administration, health promotion or public advocacy.
