Wilkinson honored at “Art of Giving” reception
Christine K. Wilkinson, Senior Vice President and Secretary of the University and President of the ASU Alumni Association, was honored by the local organization Asian Pacific Community in Action (APCA) at their annual “Art of Giving” reception on May 30. Two hundred community members gathered at the Phoenix Art Museum for the presentation, which recognized Wilkinson and two other women for their outstanding contributions to the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
Wilkinson was presented with the award because of her leadership activities in the Valley of the Sun, many of which are healthcare focused.
Wilkinson currently serves as Chairman of St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation Board, as a board member of the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association Board, the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center Board, St. Luke’s Health Initiatives Board and Executive Committee, and the Arizona State Government Relations Committee of the American Red Cross.
The APCA is a nonprofit community organization that was established in August 2002. Their mission is to improve the well-being of Asian and Pacific Islanders living in Maricopa County through empowerment, health promotion and disease prevention.
