Leonard Picha, respiratory therapist, was the sole recipient of the national 2018 Bill Lamb award for Exceptional Service in Volunteering and Mentoring by the American Association for Respiratory Care's House of Delegates. This was due to his more than four decades of service to the respiratory care profession.

Through the years, Picha has demonstrated dedication to programs like the West Virginia Charleston Asthma Management Program for Seniors, the West Virginia Asthma Coalition, The Dorney-Koppel Pulmonary Rehabilitation Centers and the state's COPD Coalition.

Picha has done significant work developing training and education for local programs and has included students in awareness activities, health fairs and advocacy days during the state legislative sessions.
