WASHINGTON – Karyn Estrella has been named as the 2019 Van G. Miller Homecare Champion.

Estrella, the long-time leader of the Home Medical Equipment Services Association of New England, passed away July 4. She is remembered for her passionate advocacy on behalf of the HME industry.

“Karyn was a force in her meetings with policymakers, but the way she encouraged and supported so many other individuals in New England to become strong HME advocates is probably the most important part of her legacy.” remarked Tom Ryan, AAHomecare president and CEO. “She also played a major role on AAHomecare State Leaders Council, both as Chair of the group and through her ever-present willingness to collaborate with and support her peers in other state and regional associations.”

The award will be presented to Karyn’s daughter Lauryn Estrella, who is currently serving as the interim director of HOMES, during the AAHomecare Update at Medtrade Tuesday morning, Oct. 22. She will also be recognized at the Stand Up for Homecare reception that night at Stats Brewpub in Atlanta.

The AAHomecare update is open to all Medtrade attendees. Tickets for the Stand Up reception may be reserved here.
