The City of Wilmington honored Diane Bohner, M.D., with a 2014 Wilmington Award. Dr. Bohner received the community award in the Health/Science category after being nominated by Christiana Care’s director of Social Work Linda Brittingham and colleague Linda Brennan-Jones, LCSW.
The award recognizes Dr. Bohner for her clinical excellence, leadership and dedication in caring for our most vulnerable neighbors within the Medical Home Without Walls Program and its community outreach, which cares for the homeless at the St. Patrick’s Community Center.
Mayor Dennis P. Williams presented awards to 25 community leaders at the 12th annual awards ceremony.
“I am honored to celebrate and recognize these Wilmingtonians and organizations who serve citizens in the city of Wilmington for achieving excellence and positively impacting the local community through these various areas of community engagement,” said Mayor Williams.
The Wilmington Awards honor the outstanding accomplishments of Wilmington citizens and those who serve the city of Wilmington. The award recipients exemplify excellence in areas including the arts, community service, faith and civil rights activism.
