Our Chair Emeritus, Dave Lawrence, was recently honored with a Florida Blue Sapphire Award in Orlando, Florida. This award was given for his efforts to improve the lives of children in Florida; he was one of only four finalists in the Individual category. The 13th annual Sapphire Awards, presented at the 2018 Florida Blue (BCBS) Community Health Symposium, recognized exemplary leadership, innovation and demonstrated successes in community health by individuals, non-profit organizations and programs in Florida.  Lawrence currently serves as chair of The Children’s Movement of Florida, a citizen-led, non-partisan grassroots movement of Floridians focusing on increased investment in the first five years of all children. The following video captures the impact Dave has had on quality early childhood education and health care in Florida.
