Tameeka Christian, Director of the Community Wellness Program at Saint Anthony Hospital, received the Unsung Community Hero Award from Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-IL) and the Sankofa Safe Child Initiative. This award is bestowed to community leaders like Christian in recognition of outstanding and invaluable service to the community. “Tameeka is an outstanding leader not just within in our team at the hospital, but in the communities we serve,” said Jim Sifuentes, Vice President of Mission and Community Development for Saint Anthony Hospital. “She is passionate about the work she does for Saint Anthony Hospital and our communities and truly makes a difference in the lives she touches. She is an integral part of our team, and this recognition is no surprise given her exceptional talent and compassion for the patients and families in our hospital communities. Without a doubt, Tameeka is an unsung hero to us and the community.” Christian was appointed Director of Community Wellness and Government Relations for Saint Anthony Hospital in October 2012, bringing over 15 years of valuable experience in community-based work. Under her leadership and direction, Saint Anthony Hospital has increased its programming and services in the North Lawndale and Little Village communities.
