HURON — The Carr Family of Beadle County collectively received American Chiropractic Association’s Humanitarian of the Year Award for stepping up as leaders in their community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Three members of the family were appointed as medical directors to the Beadle County COVID-19 Task Force early in the pandemic, leading to the family’s key contributions in not only disseminating accurate information about the coronavirus through a call center and frequent press conferences, but also to the establishment of a drive-through testing site for their community. The Carr family practice includes Drs. Joe, Wayne, John, Josh and Taylor Carr, and associate Dr. Scott Hartung.
“We are extremely honored to receive this prestigious award” said Dr. Josh Carr.
“This award is a testament to how our father taught us to step up in time of need. We share this award with the Beadle County COVID-19 Task Force and all the citizens of Beadle County,” added Dr. Joe Carr.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Neom has cited the work of the Beadle County COVID-19 Task Force as an example of the state’s aggressive response to the pandemic.
