Commissioner Arthur C. Evans, Ph.D., has been named the winner of the 2016 Philly Happenings List in the Power Person category. The award is sponsored by Philly Happenings, Philadelphia’s premier digital magazine. The Happenings List is the city’s People’s Choice competition, voted on by the people of Philadelphia, and features all of the best Philly people, places, businesses, and events.
Dr. Evans was nominated for the Philly Happenings Power Person award due much in part to his leadership, commitment, and innovation over the past decade to transforming Philadelphia’s behavioral health and intellectual disAbility service system.
The other nominees for the Philly Happenings Power Person award were Elicia Gonzales, executive director of GALAEI, and Josh Kopelman, partner and founder of FirstRound Capital.
In addition to Dr. Evans’ win in the Power Person category, DBHIDS also won in the category “Best Outdoor Event” for our National Depression Screening day events in October.
