Radio morning show anchor recognized by state health agency | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A local broadcaster has received a top radio honor from Missouri Public Health Association.
Program Director and Morning News Watch Anchor for KZIM KSIM Faune Riggin was recently recognized for her contributions to public health education in Missouri.
Riggin was nominated by the Director of the Cape Girardeau County Public Health Center, Jane Wernsman. Wernsman believed Riggin deserved this recognition for providing a monthly format for health center officials to speak in their areas of expertise including: WIC services, communicable diseases, flu shots and clinics, HIV/Aids management, vital records, food establishment inspections, and more.
Wernsman said this positive atmosphere has served all of southeast Missouri in a major way and is rarely awarded to news persons outside of Kansas City and St. Louis. The award was presented at a joint conference for the annual Missouri Public Health Association, Missouri Association of Local Public Health Agencies, Missouri Association of local Boards of Health, and the Council for Public Health Nursing.
