The second annual Crusader Community Advocate Award was given to Beverly ‘Bam’ Edwards, an Outreach Case Manager at Crusader Community Health since 1995. Rain, wind, snow, sleet ‘Bam’ is out in the ‘fields’ making sure that Crusader patients get in for their appointments. She will find ‘lost’ patients and outreach them so that they can get the care they need.
This award was initiated in 2011 to honor the memory of Annie Dandridge, a Crusader staff member, who passed away in April 2011. ‘Annie’ was an extraordinary individual who always exhibited unique kindness and concern for others.
