November 17, 2015 - 2015 Caregiver Action Network “Hands-On Help” Award

Elizabeth Dole, who heads the Elizabeth Dole Foundation for Wounded Warriors, is a Board Member of CAN and was in the front row to watch John Schall, CEO, engage in a “fireside chat” with the Senator and to officially bestow the award.  It was particularly exciting for me as I worked on Mrs. Dole’s personal staff when she was the Secretary of Labor under President George Herbert Walker Bush. She has been such a great mentor throughout my career, talking about using our abilities and talents to reach our full potential. It was fun to see them and to talk up close and personal.  Others recognized included Congresswoman Michele Lujan Grisham (D-NM), Meryl Comer, President of the Geoffrey Beene Foundation Alzheimer’s Initiative and David Badeen, Vice President, Sam’s Club HealthCare.
