ESCONDIDO, Calif. (October 6, 2023) – Neighborhood Healthcare, a regional Federally Qualified Health Center providing a wide range of medical, dental, and behavioral health services, recently named Julie Ngo its 2023 Servant Leader Award recipient.

The non-profit recognized the Temecula resident for her years of support at its annual fundraising gala last month.

“Julie’s impactful contributions span both San Diego and Riverside counties,” said Tina Pope, Director of External Affairs at Neighborhood Healthcare. “She and her family personally invest their time and generosity to ensure every individual in our system gains an equitable and accessible pathway to healthcare, regardless of their circumstance. We’re grateful to Julie for sharing this core value with us!”

As a child in a Buddhist household, Ngo’s faith taught her “to do good, be good, and bring good to the world.” Most recently, she stepped forward to serve as Neighborhood Healthcare’s Honorary Chairperson for the organization’s 2023 gala to raise funds for a Mobile Dental Health Center for students in Escondido and other North County San Diego schools. This year’s event broke all previous records with Ngo’s dedication and support.

“Julie never wavers in her commitment and dedication to the good work on behalf of the more than 87,000 patients and families we care for all year,” said Adrian Zavala, Director of Marketing and Community Engagement at Neighborhood Healthcare. “She leads with passion that others follow and undoubtedly deserves this recognition.”

Ngo is the fourth Servant Leader Honoree and joins the ranks of Elmer Cameron, the 2020 Honoree, Maxine Kreitzer, the 2021 Honoree, and Judith Descalso, the 2022 Honoree.
