Temora's innovative approach to finding new doctors for the town has been recognised with an award.
The Great Quack Quest - which has a website, Facebook page and even a La-La Land-inspired music video - was been awarded the Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network's annual innovation award.
Coolamon's 12-week Empower Challenge was named Murrumbidgee community grant of the year for providing 82 women an opportunity to escape the stresses of drought.
Calvary Riverina Hospital's women's wellness and recovery program received the promoting healthy living award, while retired GP Mangalore Kamath was recognised for his 43 years of dedication to Temora.
MPHN board chairwoman Jodi Culbert said the awards recognised the valuable and significant work being undertaken by health professionals, organisations and communities to improve health outcomes across the region.
"This year we have four award categories and overall we had a total of 22 nominations - all very deserving in their own right," Dr Culbert said.
"We had two finalists for each award category and either of them could have taken home the winner's trophy, which is a testament to your hard work and dedication to improve the health of your communities."
