Whether someone is fighting the battle at the hospital, working to develop a vaccine, or volunteering at the local food pantry, there are heroes all around us. WPS is proud to honor them with this award and support their charity of choice.”Megan Willauer, Director of Events and Strategic Partnerships at WPS Health Solutions
