Dawn Brown Awarded the ESGR Service Member Patriot Award

Sarasota, Florida (July 13, 2018)- CAN Community Health is proud to announce that Dawn Brown, Director of Clinical Implementation, has been awarded the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve’s (ESGR) Service Member Patriot Award.

The Patriot Award allows employees who are actively serving in the National Guard or Reserve to nominate a supervisor who aided in their ability to serve our country.  Service members are encouraged to show their appreciation of a supervisor who may have permitted time off, care for families or any other measures.

Mayda Brito, a member of the Navy Reserve, nominated her supervisor Dawn Brown after she was called to a mandatory training during her first day at CAN.  “CAN Community Health has proven time and time again that our employees not only care for our patients’ needs, but also for each other,”  says president and CEO, Richard Carlisle.  “Dawn has shown a tremendous amount of support for the HIV community during her time at CAN.  We are thrilled that she now gets to be recognized for the phenomenal supervisor that she is.”

CAN Community Health thanks Mayda for her service to our country and congratulates Dawn on her award.

“Balancing work and a military career simultaneously is at times challenging.  I feel extremely fortunate to be part of an organization that has shown nothing but a supportive environment and just as I feel honored; through this nomination I intend to honor back” says Mayda.
