AHF Presents Making A Difference, Lifetime Achievement Honors
The Association for Healthcare Foodservice honored industry leaders during its 2017 Annual Conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in the Washington, D.C. area last month.
Mark Lewandowski, National Account Executive for General Mills Convenience and Foodservice, won AHF’s 2017 Making A Difference Award for his leadership in corporate social responsibility. “General Mills has been a leader in corporate giving for decades,” says AHF President Julie Jones, Director of Nutrition Services at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “It’s a privilege to recognize Mark for spearheading so many efforts to give back to the community while carrying out his full time responsibilities as a national sales manager.”
The AHF Making a Difference Award is the association’s top award for business partners and the media.
Dan Henroid, Jr., director of the Department of Nutrition and Food Services and sustainability officer for UCSF Health was honored with AHF’s Lifetime Achievement Award for his career-spanning work to educate patients and retail customers about the important link between nutrition and overall health. Prior to UCSF, Henroid was in academia, including working as a foodservice and lodging specialist at Iowa State University. During this time in academia, he began studying food safety issues; his research included modeling the efficacy of novel hand hygiene tracking systems and the application of HACCP systems in food operations.
“Dan stands out as a real pillar of our community working tirelessly across numerous areas from patient foodservice, to retail outlets as well as in- and out-patient nutrition services, to improve the overall health and well-being of anyone touched by the UCSF Medical Center Department of Nutrition and Food Services,” says AHF President Jones.
