Elaine Evans, Consumer Health Medical Library Assistant, received the 2017 Johnson City Parks and Recreation Friends of Nature Award at the 36th annual Wall of Fame Awards Banquet held December 14, 2017 at Memorial Park Community Center.  This award is in appreciation of the Color My World Healthy project. Elaine developed and expanded it to the successful project it is today.  Color My World Healthy began as a grant-funded project to provide quality health information to underserved populations in the Johnson City area.  The program, currently in it’s 10th year, is now supported by the ETSU Medical Library.  The program originated at Carver Park & Recreation Center and has since expanded to included Memorial Park Community Center, Girls Inc, and various local churches.
