Gov. Honors Dr. Andazola with Distinguished Public Service Award

November 9, 2016

The 2016 Governor’s New Mexico Distinguished Public Service Awards has selected 11 individuals from throughout the state plus a lifetime achievement family to celebrate at a gala on Nov. 16 in Albuquerque. This year’s honorees include our own Dr. John Andazola, Director of the Southern New Mexico Family Medicine Residency Program and physician at Memorial Family Medicine Center. Dr. Andazola has been a champion of public health causes in our region and our state. One of these initiatives is the nationally acclaimed Nuestra Vida program which has taught better eating and healthier lifestyles to underserved areas of Dona Ana County where diabetes is exceptionally high. Memorial is very fortunate to have a physician of his caliber on our team. Congratulations on this well-deserved honor Dr. Andazola!
