What is the definition of a champion? A champion is a person who advocates on the behalf of others. They are dedicated, consistent, determined, and optimistic. A TRUE Champion goes above and beyond even through adversity. They find yes. They go the extra mile for their patients, their teammates, and their neighbor. A True Champion shows initiative, integrity, accountability and reliability. As True Health celebrates its 40th anniversary, they would like to recognize their True Champions.
Nilda Acosta is a Certified Application Counselor at our Sanford center and has worked for True Health since 2012. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics from the University of Puerto Rico; majoring in French and minoring in Italian. Nilda volunteers at the Baila Corazon assisting victims of domestic violence. Nilda published her first book, la Mujer Kque Enloquecio por un Pata de Camello (The Woman Who Becomes Crazy for Camel Legs), and was recognized by Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs with the Aipeh Medala de Oro award; celebrating Spanish language works and literature. Nilda received recognition from U.S. Representative, Alan Grayson and awarded the Premo Pluma de Oro (Gold Feather Press) by the International Association of Arts and Hispanic Culture.
When asked what made her want to be in healthcare, Nilda said: “I love helping people. My best reward is when a patient comes in and says, ‘Nilda, I’m approved!’”
