Rep. Walker honored for health care leadership.

Byline: Staff Report

State Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, has been honored by the Missouri Primary Care Association with a 2018 Champion of Community Health Centers Award for her work as a legislator on health care issues.

Walker, an attorney first elected in 2016, was recognized for her leadership and support for community-based health services for all underserved populations in Missouri, particularly for efforts to extend Medicaid coverage for postpartum mothers who are in need of services for substance-use disorder.

The award is given to individuals who serve in the legislative or administrative branches of city, county, state or federal government, or other public and private organizations. Honorees have demonstrated outstanding support of the community health-center model and are committed to increasing health care access for all, regardless of the ability to pay, and to public service with a willingness to help communities improve health access.
