WILKES-BARRE — Maternal and Family Health Services is seeking nominations for the Rose Allan Tucker Award to be presented at the agency’s 46th annual meeting of the board of directors, Oct. 18, at the Westmoreland Club, Wilkes-Barre.

The late Rose Tucker was a former Luzerne County Commissioner and long-time employee of MFHS dedicating her life as a community leader to public service, political activist, health advocate and champion for women, children and families. She opened doors for women to take leadership roles in the community and extended herself to help those in need.

Since 1996, MFHS celebrates her legacy by presenting this award to a person demonstrating a deep commitment to improving the quality of life for women, children and families in northeastern Pennsylvania. With her passing in 2009, the Rose Tucker Award has taken on even greater significance as it helps keep her legacy alive and serves as a reminder of Rose Tucker’s great contributions to the community.

Nominees for the award should demonstrate a long-term commitment to improving the quality of life in northeastern Pennsylvania, and a significant positive impact on the health and welfare of women, children and families.

Nomination forms are available on the agency’s website:, or call 1-800-367-6347. Submission deadline is Aug. 23, 2017.
