Jodi Watkins, CMT - January 2022 CMH TULIP Award Winner

The TULIP Award was established June 2021 by CMH and Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation and is a recognition program for outstanding nursing assistants, medical assistants and patient care technicians who assist in direct patient care.

Watkins earned her CNA license 27 years ago and has worked 22 years at CMH in several departments and facilities including the last 12 years in ICU.
