AAHomecare names homecare champions
ATLANTA – Joey Tart and Billy Tart, co-founders of Family Medical Supply in Dunn, N.C., have been chosen to receive this year’s Homecare Champion Award. The award recognizes AAHomecare members who have made exceptional contributions to the homecare community throughout their careers. “Their advocacy is helped by their community involvement,” said Beth Bowen, executive director of the North Carolina Association for Medical Equipment Services, who nominated the Tart brothers, in a release. “Anyone who is an elected official in their district pays attention, because they are well respected and work hard. Joey and Billy are professionals when it comes to presenting their case, and presenting the industry’s issues to people who may or may not understand those issues.” AAHomecare will present the award to the Tarts on Tuesday, Oct. 27, during the Stand Up for Homecare event at Medtrade. Family Medical Supply offers oxygen and HME at 17 locations in throughout central and eastern North Carolina.
