Lifetime achievement award presented to Miles
Brad Miles was recently awarded the Scott Leavitt Service Award at a state conference in Boise. This award is presented annually to an Idaho Association of Health Underwriters member who goes above and beyond and shows outstanding commitment to the industry and association. All statewide IAHU members are eligible for nomination by their IAHU member peers. This is a lifetime achievement award and eligibility is limited to one award per member.
Miles owns and operates Brad Miles Insurance in Coeur d’Alene, specializing in Medicare products. He began his health insurance career in 2004 and soon after joined the National Association of Health Underwriters, and then the local North Idaho chapter, which he is still active with. He recently served as the Idaho state president and is currently serving as the Region 7 Health Underwriters Political Action Committee Chair.
Miles has been teaching classes and providing continuing education on Medicare for over 10 years.
Buckalew receives Locum Heroes award
Barton Associates, a nationwide staffing and recruiting firm in the health care staffing, or “locum tenens” industry, is proud to announce that Dr. Neilly Buckalew, a Hauser, Idaho, physician, is being honored through a new recognition program for exceptional locum tenens health care professionals who make a difference through the work that they do. The campaign, called Locum Heroes, calls for nominations of physicians and advanced practice clinicians who make a difference, either as a part of or in tandem to their temporary assignments.
Two winning nominees were chosen by a panel of health care professionals and a charitable donation of $2,500 will be made in Buckalew’s name to Honduras Hope Mission, where she has been able to dedicate free time as a volunteer because of her use of locum tenens work. Buckalew will also personally receive a matching award of $2,500.
