Regina Moody Awarded 2017 John Huske Anderson Award

Regina-MoodyThis year’s coveted John Huske Anderson Award was presented at the NCMS Annual Business Meeting to Regina Moody, the President and CEO of Holy Angels, a residential campus and nonprofit in Belmont, NC. The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) awards the John Huske Anderson Award to a layperson whose contributions have had a positive impact on the medical profession and the public health. The award honors John Huske Anderson’s service to medicine and the Society, having served as its legal counsel from 1937 until his retirement in 1983. Nominations are made by an NCMS member.

Holy Angels is known for its compassionate care for ‘differently able’ and medically fragile individuals. Moody has devoted 35 years to Holy Angels and has been the visionary force guiding the organization through its continued growth and development. In her role as president and CEO, Moody leads a staff of 350 employees and oversees an annual budget of $15 million. Holy Angels’ campus includes residential group homes for 88 residents who require around-the-clock care. Holy Angels also serves approximately 50 other adults who are differently able and participate in LifeChoices, a day activity program.

“Those who know Regina praise her leadership, her business acumen, her sense of community and especially her caring and compassion,” said 2017 NCMS President Paul R.G. Cunningham, MD, in presenting the award. “As the staff at Holy Angels summed up: “Regina Moody’s accomplishments are discovered daily in the joyful, empowered faces of the differently able individuals served by Holy Angels.”

Moody was not able to be present for the award ceremony, so NCMS Immediate Past President Docia Hickey, MD, accepted the award on her behalf. Dr. Hickey has known Regina for years, serves on the Holy Angels Board of Directors and is a longtime admirer of Regina Moody’s work.

Congratulations to Regina Moody!
