Community Care Friends Awards 2021
Dr Michael Koh, Deputy Principal (Academic Services), received the ‘Friends of Community Care Award 2021’ on behalf of Republic Polytechnic (RP) from Guest of Honour, Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for Social & Family Development, Second Minister for Health during the Community Care Day 2021.
RP is the first educational institution to receive this prestigious award by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC). This award recognises organisations that have achieved excellence in supporting and growing the Community Care Sector with inspiring and innovative partnerships.
RP’s industry partners AWWA and NTUC Health nominated us for this award based on significant contributions by our staff and students from SHL, SMC and SOH to the Community Care ecosystem. We were evaluated by AIC, Ministry of Health and Community Care Sector veterans for impact of contribution, sustained commitment, going the extra mile; and emerging an award recipient after voting by the Community Care Sector.
