The award is given to those making a difference by positively impacting the health and well-being of members of our community.

As BVCN nurse care coaches, Carla and Jerri work with employees of the St. Vrain Valley School District to help keep them efficient, focused, and healthy. They help employees find the motivation to achieve career and health goals, support individual employee’s emotional and physical needs, and customize individual health programs.

Kudos to the St. Vrain Valley School District, who offer their employees access to nurse care coordinators like Carla and Jerri through membership in the Boulder Valley Care Network, a group of physicians and providers striving to make health care in our area more accessible and easier to navigate.

Employers who partner with BVCN can give their employees access to nurse care coaches, along with a network of over 300 medical providers in the Boulder area committed to a collaborative approach to coordinated care.

Boulder Community Health and St. Vrain Valley Schools are current members of the BVCN, with more area employer groups expected to join the BVCN in the coming months.
