VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The AMERIGROUP Foundation today announced that Senator Tommy Williams of The Woodlands has been honored with its "Champion for Children" award.

"Senator Williams and his efforts represent terrific examples of what we can all accomplish when we keep the end result in mind. His commitment to improving the Texas Medicaid system to encourage efficiency and preventive care offers a great example of how Texas can meet the critical goals of managing cost while also helping to improve the health of our children through innovative programs. We're thrilled to recognize Senator Williams for his work, and we're equally excited to witness achievements that will assist in making our kids and communities healthier."
