We had the 2nd largest certified number of ambassadors in the Eastern Area with eight members of the chapter who received certificates for completion of the Health Equity Ambassador Training Program. And best of all Link Sisters, the Eastern Area of The Links, Incorporated awards the Patuxent River, (MD) Chapter the "Programming at its Best Award” and a certificate for its Umbrella Program, G.E.M.S. of Germantown.
