March 6, 2019 -  On Saturday, February 23, Albany Area Primary Health Care officially announced this year's recipients of the Provider and Employee of the Year at the Annual Employee & Family picnic.  

Each year, AAPHC providers and team members nominate outstanding individuals who are truly making a difference within our organization. Once all the nominations are in, the final winners are selected anonymously by a committee of outside individuals. And, the official results are in!
