Nancy Hermann

This award honors an individual or group awareness activity that demonstrates proven improved patient or community outcomes.


Nancy is the volunteer editor-in-chief of the Savvy Survivor, an eight-page monthly newsletter distributed to 500 stroke survivors, caregivers, and healthcare agencies in the San Diego County area. Nancy uses the club’s annual needs assessment to plan out articles for the entire year. She involves speech pathologist, physical therapist, and dietician for ongoing columns. The newsletter also includes a spotlight on a stroke survivor—providing valuable information and inspiration to stroke survivors.
