Health & Wellness Champions

Aggie was instrumental with the inception, growth and sustainability of Live Well Live Atchison. For several years her tenacity and leadership grew the program into a full-fledged organization with its own Director. It is now an extremely vital part of the Atchison Community. None of which would have happened without Aggie.

Jennifer Brockhoff's drive and vision for Health and Wellness, not only for Atchison Hospital, but for other Atchison Businesses and the Atchison Community. Her out-of-the box innovative thinking has brought many great initiatives and programs to our Community.

None of this would have been accomplished without the support, guidance and leadership of John Jacobson. Atchison is a better community because of his vision and direction.
