FREMONT - A local doctor will receive national recognition today for providing health care to rural residents in three counties, namely migrant workers.
Dr. Alvin Jackson was selected from among 577 nominees to receive a $100,000 award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Health Leadership Program.
