Armando De Alba, MD, honored as outstanding young Omahan

UNMC's Armando De Alba, MD, was selected by the Omaha Jaycees as one of this year's "10 Outstanding Young Omahans." The award honors individuals between the ages of 21 and 40 who show exemplary commitment to improving the community through selfless acts of kindness while excelling in their professional careers.

"This award isn't individual; it represents a collective effort. I'm deeply thankful," Dr. De Alba said.

Jane Potter, MD, honored by Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging

Jane Potter, MD, has received the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging's first Spirit of Aging Award in the medical/health care category in recognition of the contributions older adults make to help build strong communities across the country. She is one of three individuals and a local church congregation nominated and selected for ENOA awards by ENOA staff members. One nominator said: "Dr. Potter is a valuable asset to ENOA both as a healthcare professional and as an advocate for older Nebraskans. Whenever possible, Dr. Potter promotes ENOA and the work we do in the community. Dr. Potter serves on the ENOA's Advisory Council, a group of local professionals who share their expertise to help guide the agency as it carries out its mission."
