Charles Reznikoff, M.D. is the May recipient of the Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) Making a Difference award. The award celebrates those groups and individuals in the community who have a positive influence on Northfield youth.

Dr. Reznikoff is an Addiction Medicine Specialist at Northfield Hospital. He began seeing patients with opiate addiction in Northfield last fall. Since joining the staff at Northfield Hospital, he has enthusiastically shared his knowledge and expertise involving opiate addiction and interventions to many groups in the community. Most recently, he led a drug awareness presentation for seventh and eighth grade students at Northfield Middle School. He has also given staff in-service presentations to ArTech and the Northfield School District.

“He did a great job connecting with the students with a perfect balance of importance and humor,” commented Jennifer Streefland, NMS Guidance Counselor.

HCI and the Northfield News present the Making a Difference Award cooperatively.
