Johnson County Community Health Services Public Health Coordinator Rhonda Davis holds her Public Health Leadership Nursing award with JCCHS Administrator Anthony Arton.

WARRENSBURG — The Missouri Council for Public Health Nursing awarded its Public Health Leadership Nursing award to Ronda Davis, a registered nurse who serves as public health coordinator for Johnson County Community Health Services, at the annual Missouri Public Health Conference meeting this year.

The award recognizes a Missouri public health nurse who exemplifies excellence in public health nursing practice.

Davis has served as a public health nurse for JCCHS for 15 years and was promoted to management of the department in 2016.

“I am honored to be nominated and to receive this award. I really do love what I do and know that it has an impact on the lives of those in our community,” Davis said.

“Ronda is a true asset to our agency and to our community,” Anthony Arton, administrator for Johnson County Community Health Services, said. “She is a knowledge source expert when it comes to communicable diseases, public health practices and is an advocate for policy change that improves the lives of our resident’s health.”
