The Distinguished Service to ACHCA Award recognizes an ACHCA Fellow who has demonstrated distinguished service to ACHCA and leadership within the profession of long-term care administration. Dr. Knapp’s ongoing commitment to ACHCA on the national and state level makes him an outstanding example and deserving award winner in long-term care.
