It was an honour to award the Derrick Brockie Memorial Award of Excellence to Patricia!

Born in Jamaica and suffering severe hardship as a child, Patricia came to the USA, and eventually became a nurse, and later a nurse practitioner. After she became disillusioned with the conventional medical field, she did some soul searching and began a very successful business in New York, serving the Jamaican community where she had lived when she was struggling. Her company provides home care services ranging from housekeeping to Registered Nurse visits/shifts. While highly successful, Patricia consciously has decided to forgo many luxuries in order to be a role model and provide hope to the underprivileged people in this community.

Patricia's goal is to create short, simple presentations to educate struggling low-income people on diet and lifestyle. Her excellent work ethic and heart felt drive will enable Patricia to make a meaningful difference in the lives of many. Beautiful work Patricia!

From Las Vegas, Michael Natividad wants to use his intelligence and resources to outsmart others who are trying to exploit people. He possesses a strong sense of duty in wanting to do the right things for society even if those things are not the most popular or accepted.

Michael's goal is to create a raw, vegan meal preparation restaurant with a mobile app for consumers to order meals. Users will also be educated with mini-lessons related to their chosen meals. This app will encourage the transition to a vegan, then raw, then living foods diet. Automatically logging foods consumed into a journal and prompting users to enter information on how they feel after each meal, creates awareness for the user as to how they can eat for nutrition and health.

Congratulations Michael! This is a great way to bring the HHI living foods lifestyle to the masses and we look forward to using your app!

Not only did Tara complete the Health Educator course with excellence, she also had great personal success. She lost over 30lbs and dropped her cholesterol level over 100 points!

Residing in Florida, Tara has come up with a unique plan to facilitate insurance reimbursement for alternative health care programs. It could potentially enable thousands of people to benefit by visiting Hippocrates who would otherwise not have the opportunity. Tara's idea is a good example of thinking outside the box, creatively coming up way to make Hippocrates and other alternative health care servies more accessible to the general population.

With Tara's skills and devotion, she will be able to fully bring this plan to fruition. Her company, Payslay, is already beginning to be supported by the insurance industry!
