Awards

The NC PACE Association has four awards given to those who have contributed "Above and Beyond" in service to the PACE community. These awards are presented to the winners at our Annual PACE Association Conference. The awards are:

Advocate Award
The NC PACE Advocate Awards recognize individuals who promote PACE through advocacy and education, support the collective good of PACE, help grow PACE, and educate others about PACE. 

Direct Care Award Winner:
The Direct Care Award recognizes a PACE employee that provides the highest quality direct care to participants.

Indirect Care Award Winner:
The Indirect Care Award honors a director who embodies the vision and dedication of the PACE team but who does not work directly with participants.

Dr. Marsha Fretwell PACEsetter Award
The PACEsetter Award recognizes extraordinary service and impact that “raises the bar and changes the world”. The PACEsetter winner, like the award’s namesake, recognizes PACE not just as a program, but as a solution to the healthcare challenge we all face together.
