Two Kentucky women will be recognized in Washington D.C. this spring for their work in the medical field.

Melissa Courtney, a mid-wife in Lexington and Rhonda Dixon, a healthcare worker in West Liberty were presented with giant boarding passes to Washington D.C. for the REAL Awards Thursday afternoon. The award show is the first of its kind aimed at building greater support and appreciation for healthcare workers.

Dixon was nominated by her boss for her work after the March tornadoes in 2012.

"The reason he nominated me was following the tornadoes that destroyed West Liberty March 2nd, and my whole office was destroyed, he nominated me because I was able to get our office together and not miss any visits and start back Monday morning at a new location," said Dixon.

The women are two of only nine women nationally being recognized for their work. Kentucky is the only state with more than one honoree.
