Council Vice President Honored with Medical Society's Distinguished Public Official Award

Montgomery County Council Vice President George Leventhal, chair of the Council’s Health and Human Services Committee, has received the 2014 Dr. Henry and Page Laughlin Montgomery County Medical Society Distinguished Public Official Award for his "commitment and dedication to enhancing access to health care for all Montgomery County residents.”

“I am honored to receive this award from such a vital and prestigious organization in Montgomery County,” Leventhal said. "However, I accept this award representing the many organizations, volunteers and members of the County Council who are dedicated to seeing that all residents of our County have access to quality healthcare. But our efforts can only go as far as getting people in need to the top quality physicians in our County, and in that regard, we are all partners in this mission.”
