About the award, Gary Grant, UNTHSC Vice President of Development, said, “We are very grateful to Libby Watson for the gifts of time, energy, wisdom, talent and support that she has given to UNT Health Science Center and the Public Health and Prevention Council. She epitomizes the philanthropic spirit that AFP celebrates, and it’s only fitting that she was recognized at this year’s event. Our congratulations go to Libby.”
