Sarah Noonan Delaware

Sarah Noonan, Deputy Director of Westside Family Healthcare, began selflessly and enthusiastically lending her expertise to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association in 2010, when she joined the DE Policy and Advocacy Committee. She has since become an indispensable part of our heart-health policy efforts in the First State.
Sarah has participated in Delaware Advocacy Day, helping to promote increased physical activity for elementary school children, and bike trail and pedestrian investments that enhance active transportation opportunities across Delaware. In addition, 

Sarah was recognized with the 2010 Betsey K. Cooke Advocacy MVP Award, given by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) for her work to advance the interests of federally qualified health centers and their patients during the negotiation of the nation’s landmark health reform law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

In her free time, Sarah enjoys running to stay healthy and has organized and led Westside’s 5k since its inception. She and her new husband, Brian Davis, share a home in Wilmington with their two dogs MacGyver and Miles.

Sarah exemplifies what great advocacy for patients and community health across Delaware can achieve. Thank you for being a terrific health advocate, Sarah!
