  • Evergreen physician receives award for advances in palliative care

    While attending medical school at the University of Colorado in 1983, Evergreen physician Daniel Johnson said he discovered how clinical that treating patients can be.

     

    “I thought I was jumping into a field with humanity,” he said.

    "I like the idea of shopping local," said Steve Sumner, Center for the Arts director.
